I am trying to figure out how to play smoothly without any scratches or squeaks and how to fix it. Is it too much rosin on my bow? The quality of my bow? Or is it just down to technique? Any help will be greatly appreciated. July 19, 2016 at 4:11 am #16890 HDuaneazParticipant Contribution Score 99 I noticed I was scratchy today. I figured it might be that I wasn’t relaxed enough, so I concentrated on relaxing, and it was much better.

I just watched the video and will definitely try raising my arm more while I play, I think this is a major part of the problem for me.
