Hello folks, Very cool forum. I am new to posting here so it may take me a while to get the gist of navigating around, where I should post, etc. Anyway, I have purchased the Rabbath DVD which I would recommend to anyone wishing to improve their bow technique but I was particulaly interested in the way he suggests holding the bass. In my 9 years of playing the DB and 4 teachers, (I play standing 100% of the time) the Rabbath DVD was the first time I've ever heard anyone suggest standing directly BEHIND the bass (in fact, in the photos in his method books, he angles the edge of the bass near his hip which is the way I've always held it) but he makes a compelling argument for standing behind, as bow weight and pressure is more evenly distributed across all the strings (It's been a long time since I practiced sitting and I realize this is less of an issue in this case but I do prefer to stand). I use the EGGpin which helps a little, but I am finding it very difficult when shifting to the lower registers. The position works well for mid to upper registers but I always end up reverting back to the "normal" way of holding it. Does anyone else stand directly behind when playing? Thoughts, comments, would be appreciated. Thanks.
