    Audio examples of string articulations?

    Could anyone suggest a good website or book that has audio
    examples of the different string articulations? I thought it might be helpful in working with string samples to actually hear different articulations and know
    how they're used.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Went to the site that Falcon1 recommended. It was great yesterday; now, I get mostly, "The page cannot be viewed" when trying to hear sounds or see charts. Also, I don't get the little "icons" for video, audio, anymore.

    Any explanation for this....anyone?

    Here is an excellent collection of videos that show various string articulations, bowings and effects on the violin:

    http://www.obu.edu/music/videos/bowings.htm

    And here are some more videos of string techniques on the violin and double bass.

    The site falcon1 recommended is also an informative site, but they seem to be down at the moment.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to this site but I'l like to say... W O W ! ! ! This is so great. Just what I've been praying and looking for. In regards to falcon's recommanded site, it was fantastic... A great place for information in regards to the orchestra and it's instruments. His site and examples are great too. Mr. Garritan, my hat off to you sir and my God forever bless you. You've been very instrumental (no punn...lol) in getting me where I want to be as a composer. And also, thanks for your tip on the online videos..... Great place of resource for information....

    In addition to the resources people have suggested...if you can arrange to spend half an hour with a good violinist, do so (for that matter, if you're in the NYC-Poughkeepsie-Albany area, I'd be happy to be that violinist if you like). I think it will be very informative to closely watch how the bowings work and hear the different articulations at close range.

    Marnen,

    Spending time with a real violinist to learn the different playing techniques is invaluable.

    Next time we are recording at Troy Music Hall I may take you up on that offer.
