This video demonstrates the low 1st-finger notes Ab, Eb, Bb, and F natural, the 0-1–2–3–4 fingering pattern (see page 23 for notation), and the low 1st-finger warm-up exercise on page 24. The exercise is played straight through, but it is recommended that you practise one bar at a time to start with. For sheet music, piano accompaniments, CD performance tracks, and many more exercises and pieces, order a copy of Violinworks Book 2 here.
