If you’re traveling for the thanksgiving break and can’t bring your bass, just bring your bow. You’ll have little windows of time that will be perfect for doing bow exercises. You can work on bowing with just your fingers, wrist, or elbow, and then combining the joints. You can look for tension in the muscles and look to eliminate it. You can focus on making your down and up bow exactly the same length. Be creative! There are many possibilities, plus you won’t be bothering Aunt Ethel!
