Bow Grip update

Forgot to mention - I have completely and totally changed my bow hold. I knew it was really wrong before, but I just wanted to play, but in lesson 8 my teacher suggested we do something about it. It now resembles slightly more a proper grip, and I am pleased with it for now. It has made all the notes sound smoother somehow, less strained, and has given me much more flexibility in my wrist so I can play the whole length of the bow.

Will double check it again with my teacher tomorrow.

  1. Good job! It may change quite a bit over the next few years. I think my grip has finally settled down (I say that and then it'll start to not feel comfortable again).
