where is your bow hand?
I always used to play with my hand up the bow a bit toward the fiddle, I self taught so it became a (?bad) habit, but I found I could play faster with more control and put pressure over the bow for the bite when needed (trying to play like tommy p. pretty much!)
Starting back at the fiddle now after years and wondering should I torture myself trying to hold it nearer the grip (which seems unnatural to me).
Are there any top fiddlers that hold the bow away from the grip or in other weird ways? is it worth investing time trying to hold it ‘properly’? What do you guys do? Just interested to know
