Set Up Left Hand from 3rd Finger

Set Up Left Hand from 3rd Finger

When you establish the hand frame from the 3rd finger you can tune the 3rd finger to the open string below, as both notes are the same note but an octave apart.

However the primary concern in setting up the hand is to find a frame that is stable and flexible. Thus for a short period our priority needs to be hand frame first, followed by the vital focus on intonation.

Playing pizzicato instead of with the bow helps us to focus on the left hand.
