Spiccato on the Cello

Notice the curved fingers and relaxed bow hand in this movie of slow spiccato played on the cello. For the bow to bounce with a consistent tone and steady rhythm, the player must be able to control the bounce. Notice also the place where the bow hair contacts the string is below the middle of the bow, but not too close to the frog.
