Ok, here's the deal. I am suppose to make an audition tape for this Alberta classical band. And I had thought that the audition tape had to be in months from now, so I was thinking "no sweat, i can learn how to use the bow quite easily in like half a year". But it turns out the audition tape has to be by friday. What I have to do is: 1) A chromatic scale 2) two major scales 3) a Etude or piece. I can do them, but bowing them is a whole different thing, Does anybody know any good "Cramming" practise exercises that might get me ready for friday? Would practising 4+ hours a day till then work, or would that just wear me out? Any help would be HUGELY appreciated. Also, alot of the time between a scale or song, when i go for a stroke i get a gross like ringy sound out of it.
