Lesson: Muting Strings During Cross-String Trills

For the lesson of the week we look at muting strings during cross-string trills and also the difference between the sound of fingering trills in alternative ways. I took a lesson for Daniel Bolshoy a few years ago and we dived into this idea. Now I can’t imagine not mute the upper auxiliary note. So much cleaner and tighter sounding.
