In this video lesson, Violin Instructor Todd Ehle teaches how to play Lightly Row (download it at toddehle.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/lightyina.jpg). When learning this piece, first use short bows in the middle, always of the same length (even for half notes - just leave a small silence at end of note value). Once this is working well, try using longer bows for a larger tone. If you use open E instead of the 4th finger, be sure to practice your string crossings (stop and roll) to avoid hitting two strings at once. Also, at the end of line two, leave your bow on the string during the rest.
