Jimmy Blanton arco:
And this lecture on dragonetti might also be interesting:
playing starts around 37:30
my all time favorite:
This is John Feeney playing Haydn Symphony No. 6. Great view of his playing from the tailpiece.
I was actually thinking of starting a thread just like this the other day... Thanks for the videos everyone.
nice, thanks a lot. The John Feeney Vids are very helpful in a number of ways. That perspective really gives a good indication of technique. The Sperger duo, what a great sound, what bow is that? Im getting sold more and more on the tone of gut, I think I might be up for the challenge.
This thread wouldn't be complete without P.C.....

I know it's an old thread, but I still wanted to reply to this because I got really inspired of the clips posted here. I'm a jazz player, doing mostly pizz things but I'm getting more and more to the gut strings arco-technique so the videos posted here are extremely helpful.
