Hi there, Ive been trying quite a bit to work on my bow hold lately, to achive the best sound I can when playing (still quite a long way to go). So to do this, I try to watch as much videos as I can of soloists performing, to see all the different styles. What I noticed is that Itzhak Perlman, hardly uses his 4th finger on the bow. Mostly it just hovers in the air or gets curled up while playing. Is there a reason for this? Personal preference? Is this tecnhically correct? The sound he achives is quite amazing, so Im defenitely not doubting his skill or experience or anything. Just curious. Here is an example. Thank You.
