    I would say that the explanation was great.
    I didn’t previously understand the movement right at the bow change.
    I’m still having 50% crunch at frog change..,,so I can move forward a bit more now

    dankje wel Zlata!! Beetje gek dat in de vertaling wordt gesproken over “positie”wisseling ipv. snaar wisseling 🙂

    ik ga het even uitproberen!!

    p.s. waar ik het meeste moeite mee heb: spelen van snelle korte nootjes !! bijv. de snelle nootjes in het scherzo van Schubert 6e symfonie, maar ja, dat zal wel een kwestie zijn van héél véél oefenen ……….:-)

    groetjes Judith
