Thread Name: Sometimes goes limp (bow hair)
Subject: Sometimes goes limp
This is a practical advise question for other fiddlers. You know what I's talking about. Viagra won't help. You are playing out in the evening, and as it cools off the the humidity changes, you can't keep enough tension of the bow to produce a good tone. What I usually do when it gets bad enough is just put the fiddle up for the night? Anyone got any practical suggestions?
