Changes in Hand Frame

Changes in Hand Frame

Here are all the 1st and 4th finger notes (1-4s) in 3rd position in A Major.

Take care to reach back a half-step (semitone) with the 1st finger on the A-string to make the augmented 4th interval between 1st and 4th fingers.

Take care again when moving from the A string to the E-string that the 1st finger stays in the same position but the 4th finger pulls back a half-step to make a perfect 4th again.

The left-hand position on the E-string, therefore, is a semitone lower than on the G and D-strings.

You can also practise this left-hand movement without the bow....
