vibrating strings


Recommended Posts

When I play in third position on my violin, mainly when playing "A" on the "D" string, I seem to get a harmonic note sounding at the same time. The A string vibrates along with the note (obviously because they are the same frequency) and to me sounds quite noticable. has anyone else experienced this, or could someone explain to me if this is normal?

My teacher calls it a "ringtone". It also helps determine if you are playing your A (in different positions, including 1st) in tune. It produces a type of "echo" when you play the note in tune. It kind of words when you are playing the g on d string, d on a string, ect... That came in handy when I first started Violin and couldn't play in tune with my 4th finger. That was awhile ago.
