Rosin works

I had lessons with MJ this evening. He shared with me how to play my programme more musically. He shared with me new perspective to practising the running notes. It did help.

MJ showed me the rosin that he uses. He rubbed some of it onto my double bass bow, and for some reasons, while the bow started out feeling too sticky at the beginning, the grip with the strinsg became much better after some playing. I did not have much chance to see what rosin he was using, but he said this rosin only needs to be applied about once a week.

Anyway, for those of you who would like to read more about bow care, here's a website by a Luthier based in Singapore. This webpage gives idea about bow-care and use of rosin:
