Bows

Dear Beth & All.  I  read somewhere  that as a rule of thumb a bow should cost about a quarter ( I think), the cost of the violin. I have a $450 / £300 Gliga violin that I am very pleased with but I am not sure about the bow and would be happy to upgrade if you thought it worthwhile. Christmas is coming! Any recommendations would be appreciated.

My current bow is one of the standard octagonal Brazil wood types.

Best wishes, Nick

Hi Beth! When I go to Resources/Audio Files, I can’t copy Greensleeves audio recorded in my computer as MP3 format-sound like I did for Sad Romance by browsing the arrow at the right side (third icon from the top) because this time it‘s blocked.

The following icon, (fourth from the top) is directing me to register in Facebook and download "Soundcloud”.

Please help me.

Hi Beth - just reviewing the Part 5 shifting video - ascending (high finger to low finger). In the video, you demonstrate shifting on the A string from second finger C natural to second finger E natural to then help place the first finger on D natural. My question is: if I were to shift from C# would my shift still be to E natural or to E# so that I'm still keeping a high second during the shift? Thanks.

Beth,
When playing vibrato when would you place your finger on the string as a solid note and then vibrate versus vibrating as soon as your finger hits the note on the string?
Thanks.
Gwen

ARGHH ! 

Breathing Fire and smoke trying to get one measure right in Seitz #5 1st mov.(not to mention all the others, but one thing at a time)  I've been trying to get this right for weeks and don't seem to be getting anywhere. 

I play it slowly...over and over thinking about where my fingers are going, listening to intonation.......when I think I've got it I play slowly some more.......got it.......ok....speed up a little.....still ok......a little more.......bring it up to speed and ....ARGH ! Crash/Burn !

I'm about to give up at this point and move on..... I need a fire and brimstone smiley/frownie thing here......  >:-\
