Video Transcription

So, as you know, over at the frog, we're here, we're in the middle of the bow. We're here and we're at the tip we're here. We're sort of like moving between here and here on the finger, between here and here. Well, to simulate that, what I can do is this. I'm getting used to now my bow sliding on my index finger. I'm pushing off with my little finger to make that happen. You can do that for a little bit every day. It's cool. It feels good.

thank you for affirming something I have always done, and thought it was just me.....Yes it feels good to "connect" with the bow (and bow-stroke). Thank you so much for your interior view of bowing!
