Variation 13 – Kreutzer Study No.13 at heel of bow (deleted)

ID 5362_4

To play Ševčík’s Variation 13 at the heel of the bow use just the hand and fingers for the collé stroke.

Practise this action on open strings and then add in string crossing to extend the range of movement.

Start the stroke with the hand in a neutral position; that is if you curve your fingers and thumb you will play an up bow and if you straighten them you will play a down bow.

To play this stroke all your joints need to be flexible and the 4th finger needs to actively support the bow.
