• Whole bow on the half-note
• Localize the quarters at either the upper or
lower “polar regions”
• Good opportunity to recheck bow straightness at the tip and frog
• Rebalance finger leverage to compensate for light bow at tip & heavy bow at frog.
• Careful execution should result in very even tone and dynamic
• With faster tempos, overall length will diminish, but relativitywill remain
• Common mistake: using same distance on quarters as halves
