The Return of the Ugly Raspy Sound.... And here I thought I'd gotten rid of this problem long ago. Unfortunately, it has crept back. You know how sometimes it sounds as if the bow hair is sliding a bit, and making a raspy/scratchy sound instead of the full sound? Well, that's what has been happening. I have rosined the bow, tried with a different bow, etc. I've also talked to a couple other players and they've commented that my strings are a bit "dug into" the bridge (and not resting peacefully on top of it) and such tight grip might be contributing to the stiffness of the string, which in turn increases the static friction needed to move a string. Whatever... I think it is me, and my simple question to the group and Beth is: (a) why did it come back? Any clues?, and (b) how do I get rid of it?
Yes, if I slow down a lot, and/or increase the bow pressure the problem goes away. However, in fast passages and or a lot of string crossings it is difficult for me to increase the pressure. One thing is for sure, it didn't use to happen. Weird... Oh well...

Not that I am on a time line or anything, but how long did it take some of you to learn and or memorize Perpetual Motion from Suzuki Book I?

I did learn today that I will be seeing Perpetual Motion on book 4 as well (yippie!! . . . scratches head). I'm afraid I'll be stuck on this piece for a few weeks/months . . . ouch!

This is the sort of thing that usually throws me when it comes to timing. Just about anytime a note is carried over into another measure I loose track of the beat when I try to figure it out on paper. I can just about always find it when I'm just listening to a recording of the music but that's not very helpful when I have to "get it" on paper first with little or no time to work it out before I need to actually play it ! I have to rehearse this tonight with the group and I only have about 20min practice time left this AM....we'll probably only go over it once because of course, everyone else "gets it" but me and then I have to try and work it out myself and just get up and play it Sunday morning and be perfect....lol. Very stressful and I have almost gotten to the point where I just give up and do "whatever" hoping no one notices...except that stuff like this is usually a "solo" interval thing for me. Our rehearsals are usually rushed and we plow through the music pretty quick so everyone can move on to whatever is next in their lives....and I'm wasting practice time typing this out...YIKES !......*help*
