Hi Alex!!!,
You’ve touched a very unclear point in here!!!!
when you said(1:07) that you have seen that you needed to refine a detail to make sure the movement is correct,
what do you mean by that?

This is a very important theorethical issue and I cannot find any thing about to explain it.

What is a correct movement? What is a ine with more or less tension? when is a curve in tension and when not?

Thank you very much!

Sergio, Thank you for asking. I will try to explain in Future workshops more clearly. When I am talking about movement, I am looking at overall composition and when I see that not everything is in a harmony flow, I am trying to refine detail to bring it harmony.

Hi all,
here is a nice example of the use of dutch reed This is a documentary about violin making by Brian Lisus.


Nice, gonna have to pick up some reeds next time I’m at the lake.
