Practice strategy: Use less bow
If you are struggling to get a good sound or to play with ease and flow, try to play with less bow. A lot of beginners use long bow strokes without realize how hard they are working to keep up. Shorten the bow lengthen and take a casual attitude towards playing.
As your body and mind relax, you can experiment with lengthening the bow strokes. Long bows are useful for developing a nice tone. But I think it’s best to start with shorter bows.
