Hello. I'm jnsure how to describe my issue. When I am playing on my viola, when I try and bow at the heel, I always get a scratchy ughy sound. I have tried rosining it, but that only helps tempoaraly.
Does anyone have a soloution(s)?
If you're transitioning from the violin, it could be that you need to think differently about sound point. I find I cannot approach the bridge as closely on viola as I can on the violin for the same kind of musical context. Perhaps that is my own limitation as a player, but there it is.
At the heel? You mean the frog? You are pressing too hard and your bow isn't moving fast enough.
