I've been dealing with a bow that has been too light for me for maybe 8 months-1 year, but it never really pissed me off until yesterday.
I was practicing yesterday and my bow is so light that everytime I play anything, it involuntarily bounces or slides across the strings. The sound I produce is very "airy" and it sounds quite disgusting. I have no idea what to do to deal with this problem! Please help! I was so frustrated I swear I could've thrown my violin to the ground because everything was sounding so gross! I'm not sure if my parents will let me get a new bow so... how do I deal with this problem?
