Hi! I wrote a comment on "Lesson 15: Finger Motion at the Frog", and I forgot to ask a specific question aside from inquiring about additional exercises. What is the movement at the "thumb" during the finger motion at the Frog? Is the tip of the thumb moving toward the palm of the hand or away (toward the fingerboard)? In other words, is the thumb contracting or extending? Thanks!

Hi Beth! When learning to play individual notes, what part of your fingers do you use to hit/press the strings? If I try to be precise and keep my finger from touching any adjacent strings I'm limited on the area of the finger-tip that I can use due the my physiology (wide finger tips). Also, if a measure has G, F# and E sequentially (D string) do you put all three fingers down simultaneously or one at the time? Being a beginner I use a lot more force to keep the strings down (I'm working on it as your have shown on our video), and my finger tips are killing me. ;-)

Shoulder rests: I got the Kun super and it doesn't lift the violin high enough so I need to return it. Does anyone know if the Bon Musica or any other rests are able to adjust higher? ..or have a recommendation for me? If I slide my hand in between the shoulder rest and my body (flat against my skin) - that is the amount of additional height I seem to need. about 3/4 to an inch more. Also, I ordered an over the tailpiece chin rest to see if that was more comfortable but it doesn't fit over my tailpiece. Not high enough. Any help would surely be appreciated! :) Thanx!

Hello. Brand new beginner here too. I was wondering if there is an exercise that would help eliminate bow bouncing on the strings or if the "bouncing" is simply a symptom of weak arm muscle? Will this bow é─˙bouncingé─¨ eventually dissipate once the bow hand and arm get the muscles trained or is this bouncing effect due to improper griping of the bow?

I keep accidentally hitting the D string when I am playing on the A string. I've tried lowering my arm but it still keeps happening. Any advice will be appreciated.
