All right, we are bowing.
We are bowing maniacs.
We're going to try to do a little bit of
smooth bowing here.
And we have been going, we've been doing
the, the long-bows.
All that kind of stuff.
We've doing bowing in the upper half.
We've been doing bowing in the lower half.
We've been playing around with just the
idea of that.
Just a little bit.
But basically, let's just concentrate on
the upper half of the bow for
We are going to really hone in on getting
a really smooth sound at the bow change.
And that means that we are aware
of our wrist and our knuckles in order to
because that's what is flexing back and
forth and helping us be smooth.
And again, we wanna make sure that our
floated up to a comfortable position and
that our forearm has
tilted slightly to our left and downward.
So it tilts like that.
When we grab the bow with our good bent
That means that the wrist is being able to
flex in the direction of the motion of the
So we're gonna start in
the middle of the bow.
So, we're seeing that flex in the wrist
and the flex in the knuckles of the right
The bow is slightly tilted.
The stick is a little bit farther away
from us than the hair, right?
Because that's, that's what happens when
you, you're over like that.
The bow tilts at an angle.
You can see that angle.
That's a good thing.
So what we want to do is just practice
going back and forth.
This motion you can kind of see.
I can also show it.
If you want to use that.
Now, if you can do that.
Practice doing that.
It's not going to be the same thing as
doing it on the instrument though.
first it's probably going to seem a little
you know, but just try to make it feel,
you know, just kind of psych yourself into
the idea that the bow is doing the motion
and the hand is just following along.
It's just along for the ride.
And it'll eventually start to feel a
little bit more normal.
And we can again do this with the
We'll set it to 76.
And we'll play one bow stroke every two
Now we'll go to every one click.
Just try to keep it smooth.
Keep that wrist and knuckle motion.
And now we'll go, try going twice as fast.
And we get up to that tempo that's when we
want to start thinking about the rhythm
and making sure that rhythm is really
good, we're right.
Something that you could dance to.
So that's, we're working up to.
