    Default Violin help!!!

    Hi, i used to play the violin a long time ago, for a year and a half. After that i rarely played and until now i started to get serious again but there is an issue that i had back then and i have now that ive never been able to fix it.
    Its simple, when im playing on the A string and im playing a D note with the bow going donwards, and then i make a legato to the E string playing the E note, and i almost all the time make this really disgusting high frequency sound. The thing is i dont get it when i do it with the bow going upwards, and also when i play any other note on the E string.

    Has anyone had this problem???

    Hi !!!

    It's called a Wolf Note and i sometimes experience it. There are many factors that can cause it. Pls consult this site/forum for possible solutions ...

    I solved mine by adjusting the height of the bridge (lowering and flattening it) and positioning it further down the instrument (not exactly aligned between the f hole notches).
