Does playing violin sound tense? what is problem
When holding bow, fingers hold bow too much, so bow lacks elasticity when moving along bowstring, which affects vibration of bowstring and cannot give a good tone, so you can only tighten resonant tone.Pull closer to fingerboard (the place where strings are softer ), and a place where strings are softer cannot produce a concentrated tone, in order to draw out a more concentrated tone you need to pull near bridge (a place where strings are relatively hard), but since stiffer fingers will affect vibration of bow, this will easily lead to choppy sounds or flat timbre.
To put it simply, when bowing, fingers should be more relaxed so that fingers become softer. and resonant tone.
Of course, to make sound louder, you need to press hard, but you should not press bow with your fingers. As long as fingers are pressed hard, fingers become stiff and sound becomes hard. Therefore, method we use is to transfer force from a relatively long distance in order to keep elasticity of fingers, but still keep pressure of bow.
Generally speaking, pressure exerted on bow comes from weight of arms, or even weight of shoulders can be used to push (some people say back strength can be used for this), but in either case, fingers should not be hard , because when hand is pressed bow will be caught between fingers and string, so bow can be clamped by force of hand pressing bow, so force of fingers is unnecessary, as long as fingers are strongly pressed, bow will become. If there is no elasticity, it will affect vibration of a good string, so sound will become tighter.
