leader-of-the-first-disorder  asked:

im a little late to the bass bow debate but: i started on french bow, switched to german bow out of curiosity then, was Forced to switch back to french in high school. it was then my wrist started getting all messed up. i was holding it correctly but after 3 years, i got carpel tunnel in my bow hand. i got a doctor's note to switch back to german bow and the teacher who gave me such a hard time finally shut up. german bow superiority: it just feels more natural

damn I never even thought about getting carpal tunnel in the bow hand. bassists have it rough

Excuse me @bass bow anon, German bow is most definitely the superior bow! German bow imo has a more natural hold cause with French you have to bend it 90° towards yourself, but with German it's simply just bending your wrist to the left a little. Either way it's all a matter of preference but I don't see why you would want to torture your wrist in such a way

things are heating up in the bass bowhold fandom


Luthés for @lipsiesteatime 

Finally I’m doing RPG characters again! Its been a while (things have been so busy and have finally calmed down)!  I had started drawing Luthés a while ago but have only just gotten around to finishing her.  

So this is an Elven Ranger who’s been busy travelling around their world and becoming embroiled in some world saving activities.  The world is one that has a Germanic feel to it so I tried to incorporate some germanic feeling patterns into her clothing and accoutrements (like the smocking on her shirt and the pattern on her quiver).  I’m really pleased with how the details turned out in this one so included a bit of a close up.  

Anyway she was a real pleasure to design and draw and now that I have a bit of time up my sleeve I’m keen to get back into it.  So MORE CHARACTERS PLEASE! 

anonymous asked:

have you ever tried playing the violin with 2 bows because i once did and it did not go very well

i have. in various different contexts

  • i grabbed my stand partner’s and my bows from off the music stand and just started playing with them during break in orchestra (this happened both in youth orchestra, back when i played violin, and in string orchestra)
  • i did the left hand and had two other violinists do the bows and tried to play double stops like this
  • i was warming up by doing shifting exercises on the a string during orchestra and the violinist behind me came over started bowing on my g string
  • i’ve tried playing violin with a german bass bow AND a violin bow on the same string
  • i’ve played downbow on one string while someone else played upbow on the same string. it was interesting

swinging into the french vs german bow discourse: german bow IS superior. you wont get injured if you hold and use it correctly and it is the most natural to play on bass for optimal sound. you must realize that your bass is not just a large violin and that bassists should not conform with the rest of the orchestra for visual aesthetic, but for functionality & performance

@bass anon - wtf do u mean the german bow is superior? u have to play with ur wrist at a 30° angle and that's how people get trapped nerves! the french bow is so much more comfortable and fits in with the rest of the string section. also the actual name for it is the dragonetti hold... just sayin

this discussion is getting heated


March Photo Challenge Day 3: Silhouette 

I did it a bit differently :) Noodle was so patient with me and we are working on her camera shyness and I am so surprised that she had no fear of the light I used even though it was big and strangely shaped. I think she’s quite the lovely model :)
