stance/bow technique

Discussion in 'Orchestral Technique [DB]' started by flowinowen, Sep 29, 2010.


  1. started the eccles sonata in g minor for a recital piece only to find out my stance as a whole and right arm need lots of adjustment. my teacher has been harping light bowing on the strings, which ive been working on. next comes the stance. Ive been playing with the end pen pretty high up (about ten inches out) with the back side of the bass at an angled rest on me. any suggestions out there for improvement??
     
  2. If you want any help at all on that from the net, you're going to have to post pictures or (better) video of yourself playing.

    This is the kind of thing an in-person lesson is most valuable for.

    Ten inches out for the endpin seems mighty far. Where does the nut of the bass come up to on you?
     
  4. Once again, the Andy Anderson videos are a big help.
