Okay, I'm sure this is a common problem, but my false harmonics are rather scratchy and resonate poorly. In the past I've heard that you should keep the bottom finger very firm and the top very light, and I'm trying to do this, but its not quite helping. Also I think my bow is part of the problem - it kind of slides back and forth toward the bridge sometimes. I'm especially having trouble articulating the beginnings of the harmonics. Any tips?
If it helps any, the piece in question is the second movement of Saint-Saens.
Thanks in advance.
