Variation 23 – Bach excerpt, active elbow (deleted)

ID 5390

Notice how we use the elbow to help our bow division. Every down bow starts at roughly the same place in the bow (around the balance point) and the up bows are leading musically towards the down bows which are on the beat.  Using the side of the hair helps further reduce friction on landing.

When practising, try playing just one phrase, then pause to take time to think before repeating the phrase.
