Feb 7, 1. Mar 7, I just got a hold of a bow technique book called Strokin' by Hal Robinson and noticed that its missing some things. I was told that the book relates specific strokes to specific excerpts but mine doesn't seem to have it.
Are there two different editions? Feb 8, 2. Apr 2, No edition I know of relates it to excerpts except for one stroke. It has every stroke you could ever think of.
It is your job to relate it to the excerpt. Feb 8, 3. That's not true. Talk to Ira Gold or Paul Ellison. Feb 8, 4. I've studied with Ira Gold. There is one stroke that is related to tchaikovsky 4.

Sep 9, I am practicing the Sevcik bowing strokes at the moment along with my other pieces.

How fast do you eventually do the excerpts? Stuff like that. Any tips would be appreciated. Feb 13, 9.

The George Vance books were originally intended to be the Suzuki Bass foundational books.
The only place I've found them online is Robertsons in the US. Does anyone know of a UK seller? I've got a copy of Boardwalkin' that I ordered direct from Robertson's. They were the only distributor I could find. Happy to answer any questions you might have about the book's content.

Thoughts on Practicing I could write and talk about practicing much longer than I'm sure anyone would want to listen. So I will spare everyone and only offer a couple of tools and resources to help making practicing more rewarding. First I would say, don't practice what you know you can do already. Practice where you feel you can improve. There are at least a bazillion ways to practice something that isn't working, and some of those ways can be found in books, magazines, online, and from your teachers.
