|Gern||Fiddle Bowing (82* d)||RE: Fiddle Bowing||15 Dec 07|
I share the frustration. Five years in fiddling, after 40 years of other instruments, I just can't relax more bowing wrist. I tense my jaw muscles, exhaust my hand muscles, and when I become conscious of it all, I can only stop it for a few seconds before it sets in again. I wonder if there are exercises to overcome wrist tension and the stiffness it creates in my playing?
