Hooked Bowings


These types of bowings are typically used in compound meters such as 6/8, or for playing dotted rhythms so that the shorter, unaccented note remains unaccented. The bowing can be indicated in music with bow markings, slurred articulation markings, or both. Often, a composer provides no indications, and the performer must make a decision about whether to play a passage using a hooked bowing.
