      Your bow hold explanation helped a lot. Thanks.

      Great show thanks. Unfortunately didn’t have comment section. Maybe why others didn’t comment as much as usual as well. Did have one question. In addition to pressure to initiate strokes and to pulse do you also give greater emphasis to downstrokes? Thanks again. Michael

      What was your favorite part of the performance? The pragmatic bowing tips are very useful. I also liked hearing part of Old Bunch of Keys and am inspired to learn it. Thank you Rayna!

      Excellent in every way!...Glenn Godsey I'm going to send you a youtube of a tune I made up: Take Me Back To Tulia, that's Tulia, Texas. NOT Tulsa.

      I especially appreciated the frequent repetition of the whole tune so that we could put the snippets into context as we learned them. And the bowing instruction was, as always, awesome.
