|One of my favorite pieces for long sustained bow strokes is Air by Bach. It takes a lot of control to hold one note 9 counts at 66 on the metronome. If one can play that first note well it does wonders for the rest of a persons playing. Check out Sarah Chang playing this piece on youtube. WOW

Mary, I totally agree. If you can hold a lovely tone for 9 long beats then you're definitely mastering that long sustained bow stroke that is so essential to playing slow melodies well.
