  4. Anonymous asked: ok, problem - im studying the praeludium and allegro my 'e' string squeaks so bad in the last page with the chords [after the sections with the trill variations and open 'e'/ascending passages] suggestions please! <3

    mylyngraceviolin:

    Off the top of my head:

    • Not enough bow pressure 
    • Incorrect bow arm angling doing chords (elbow check)
    • E string needs changing

    Regarding pressure, I’m not saying you should saw thru those chords, but definitely maintain a consistent bow pressure to allow for consistent tone; not enough of it could result in squeaking. 

    Regarding bow arm angling, keep the shoulder relaxed and let your elbow drop naturally. Something like forceful tugging can result in squeaking/scratching/horrible tone. Check w/ your private teacher/school director to observe your bow arm during that passage.

    Regarding the E string itself, if you’re using a gold E, they can be notorious for squeaking (especially if you play frequently and the haven’t changed strings in 6/7+ months.) Kaplan (I think…) makes a non-whistling E string that you can definitely try out. But depending on the combination of strings you play on currently, the Kaplan E may not compliment well. If you’ve already addressed bow pressure/bow arm issues and are still squeaking, consider a new set of strings or try a new brand. The combinations are endless and all depend on the temperament of your instrument.

    Good luck w/ your study!
