    How do you avoid the “hickey” red mark on your neck? Thank you!

    • Violinist Zlata Brouwer

      By a relaxed and balanced violin hold, supporting the violin partially with your collar bone and partially with your left hand. Also make sure your chinrest en shoulder rest and well adjusted and of the right shape. You can search this site as I’ve made various video lessons and reviews about this.

    I had the growling sound too, when I still had cheap STEEL CORE strings! I haven’t had it since I switched to synthetic core strings.

      Thanks for sharing, Nadeline, indeed good quality string can make a big difference.
