Bow Technique, Part 1: Getting Comfortable with the Bow
 
Bow technique is all about trying to get the tone you hear in your head out of your fiddle. Chad demonstrates his approach to holding the bow, and shows you how to find a good position that will work for you, with some simple exercises from Yehudi Menuhin’s book Violin and Viola.
