Maintaining a straight bow with even pressure or weight on the string from frog to tip is crucial. Which led me to write the following, as problems with my right hand caused by MS are presenting quite a challenge for me:

A Violinist’s Lament

Violinist’s Lament

Hey diddle diddle, I tried to play my fiddle
But my right hand shook though it shouldn’t
I tried to make my left hand shake but no matter how I tried
I couldn’t free it from my fiddle and it wouldn’t

Oh how I try to make that fiddle sing
But its sounds are as sweet as a cat’s
Some would even say, cruel as it may,
That a cat sounds better than that!
