Sevcik and the Bear.

This post will probably not be of much interest to anyone but I feel like writing it anyway.  I recently purchases the Sevcik violin studies arranged for bass.  For those of you who do not know what I am talking about Sevcik wrote around 7 billion bowing studies based on a simple 2 octave C Major scale.  After one night of practice on them I am convinced that this book is exactly what I am looking for.  I went through about 8 different permutations before practicing my Bach and really felt/heard an improvement.  I don’t think that my bow arm got that much better in 20 minutes but that it (my bow arm) was much more relaxed from the repetitive nature of the Sevcik.   So more that just improving you strokes the Sevcik also serves as a centering and relaxing tool creating more effective practice sessions in general.Sevcik

    I have a similar Sevcik – Feuillard arranged it for cello. I agree that it helps … if only I would practice it.

    You can’t say that this was of interest to no one.

    PS – the Jack studies aren’t going so well … but I shal persevere for Jonday.

    Wow… I sure hope she brings me another Diet Coke soon. He keeps rambling on and on about this… Maybe I should try throwing a punch at his trachea…
