See below for video demonstrations of the low 2nd finger notes on all the strings; see page 90 of Violinworks Book 1 for notation and further advice. Please click here to order a copy of the book.
- The first video is taken from the side: notice that my wrist and hand remain still while the 2nd finger lifts and drops from the base knuckle.
- The second video is a “violinist’s view”, to show you what the finger movement looks like from a player’s viewpoint.
- The low 2nd finger notes are a minor third above each open string. Try singing these intervals.
