Inquiries from my Inbox:  Anmajumdar asks, “Do you use first knuckle and wrist for your vibrato?” Peter writes, “I have a full-blown arm vibrato, which only makes me clamp down on the violin with my neck... do you have any tips to help me learn a 'wrist' vibrato?”

 

Random Musical Thought: Why do so many people fail to realize that my Birthday Variations are supposed to be a parody?

 

Main Topic: A conversation about the art of making early music strings out of gut with luthier and stringmaker Dan Larsen. For more information, please visit http://gamutmusic.squarespace.com/
