i have just started to play the upright more exclusively and i am haveing trouble getting an even tone from the bow. i play french and i have taken lessons of and on for a few years but i switched to electric for a long time and i was never that good with a bow to begin with. when a passage is mostly quarter notes i can get a nice even sound bowing them but when i try to play a long tone the end of the note dies out or gets scratchy. how do you keep even pressure through the entire bow? i am thinnking of switching to german to try and help, i hear that it is easier to get more presure into the sting on a german bow. is this right or am i way off? thank you.
