Bowing #11

• On the string
• Divide the bow equally to make tone even
• Stop and restart consistently and without noise
• Tempo, dynamic and style will govern length of strokes and the amount of stop between notes
• When dashes are given instead of dots this stroke is called Louré and the bow doesn’t stop; only the weight changes making a pulsating effect (aka. Portato)
• Common mistake: unequal bow division
• Common mistake: inconsistent note length
