How to Play Two or More Up Bows

Two Up Bows

Example of Two Up Bows

Sometimes in music, the author will tell us to play two Up bows in the same bow. It will look like this:

Most often you will want the two bows to sound like you changed bow strokes, not one smooth line. In order to accomplish this, you simply play the first note, stop gently and then play the second note.

Try to divide the bow evenly based on the number of Up bows marked. For example, if there are two Up bows marked then it may be divided evenly into two separate notes. The equal division may change with the type of rhythm marked.
