After 1.5 years of beginner violin, I've only just realised that i've been holding the bow wrong all this time. My thumb and pinky have been straight. I'm finding it really difficult to change my hold and nearly impossible to bend my thumb and use only my thumb, index and ring finger! Long fingers seem to be getting in the way and i feel the need to 'wrap around' the bow to get a good hold. Any ideas?
