The Bow Hold

 

Here are the fundamentals of a good bow hold:

 

  • Loose, like holding an egg

  • Tip of thumb not the flat

  • Bent thumb not straight

  • The stick appears between 1st and 2nd knuckle on index finger

  • Introduce a slight rotation or 'lean-in' with the wrist

  • Tip of little finger on bow

  • Avoid spreading the fingers
