  1. Hi. I'm trying to make a progressive repertoire building plan. I see from this list of Violin Solos, there is the Variations on "God Save the Queen" by Henryk Wieniawski. And it does not refer to the Variations on ''God Save the King'', Op.9 by Niccolò Paganini, as it is also included in the list. http://violinmasterclass.com/en/graded-repertoire/violin-solos Of course, I'm still working on the fundamental Johann Sebastian Bach, but I hope to make sure even the information on the hardest solo pieces are clear. Thank you
  2. Hi. I use flat bow hair as default. My teacher wants me to tilt the bow for a certain movement. Yet, awkwardly I am struggling [analyzing every decision, as usual] on whether tilting the bow by: 1) rolling the bow with fingers 2) by bending the wrist [keeping the same bow grip] Which way is smarter? Why? Thank you
  3. I'll use "L5" as the fastest bow motion the instrument can tolerate, i.e. almost on the fingerboard. Thank you for explaining.
  4. So do you recommend "L5" as neaerest to fingerboard or bridge? Because I also use numbers to represent bow speed and bow pressure to remind myself, which "S5" and "P5" are the highest and fastest. (As the number is larger)
  5. Hi. I see Dorothy Delay numbers the sounding points in the following photo, why? Should I follow the Dorothy Delay or reverse it? ("5" sounds bigger, which means more powerful and matches the numbering?) "She started on soundpoint (or lane) five: the lane closest to the fingerboard. (DeLay used these numbers in reverse, Fischer said.) She played, then he demonstrated, using her bow on the violin under her chin. He asked her to look for the swinging of the string, the amplitude, and try to make it as wide as possible. Also, listen, feel the bow in the string, and think."—Simon Fischer Thank you
  6. @vathek I think the composer / editor means the E4 (in beat 1) and the B4 (in beat 2), which forms a perfect fifth, requiring to stop both the D and A strings with the first finger
  7. From one of my printed sheet collection
  8. @vathek I don't know. But it makes sense to press both D & A strings with the first finger
  9. @Rue Me neither... T^T but I hope I can explain to people where do the symbols I use come from
