From time to time, I experience a total different hand/joint/body condition in playing Violin and I'd like to check with more players here to see (1) whether it's normal (2) if so how do you overcome or mitigate it?
To be more specific, with the condition, I meant I found my hands to be dryer, and hand/wrist joints "feel like heavier to move". As a result, vibrato would be much harder to achieve, and intonation would be harder too as the fingers would not be able to follow brain as accurately as it used to be.
I'd try to crack joints to help. Sometimes when my hands start to sweat, it would greatly improve too.
Dear violinists/violin-lovers, is this normal and if so or not so, any suggestions? Your input is much appreciated!Tweet
