Hi, Beth. I'm currently doing the finger stretching exercises. My problem is, having to control the clenching of my thumb. As my thumb pushes forward, I can feel the pressure as well at the pointy finger's joint that is touching the finger board. Please advise, thanks.

Maintaining a Straight Bow #7: wow! great analogy with the 'punching' or 'dart-throwing' imagery - very powerful and helpful.

Thanks.

Is anyone else having problems with playing the videos? I just started a few weeks ago and everything played well. That is until a few days ago. Now I can't seem to get any videos to play. It can't be my computer because other web sites line YouTube work great.

I purchased a bridge mute.It was either that or risk bodily harm.Will it inhibit my training or is it just something to get used to

I use olive rosin and once i used my teacher's rosin which is Satorri light brown colour, and I found it makes a bit different sound. Beth just said dark colour rosin makes a bit of sticky sound, is that the reason? My bow is really beginner's one. should i change it to other one or it doesn't really matter?

Theory question...if you can explain this in a way that I can grasp....you get "3"(count em!) "3" stripes on your pajamas...OR!...a cookie...you get to choose ! :-D

In the book "A complete idiots guide to music theory" the author states..."When measuring a scale by degrees (numbering the intervals)....you can see that the 2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 7th notes can be easily flattened." ....well, actually, no...I can't see that they can be easily flattened, or rather, I can't seem to understand why that is so and the author doesn't explain this. He goes on to say that when you flatten one of these notes you create a "minor" interval, which I do understand what he means by that, I just don't understand why these particular intervals or degrees are more easily flattened than the 4th, 5th and, well...the octave, but I do understand that you can't flatten or sharpen an octave, because then it wouldn't be the octave...right? .....oh gosh....I need an aspirin !! <:-P
