  • For upper 3rd position - thumb a hair above the saddle. plant the middle finger with the 3rd & 4th fingers when going backwards

  • Curly index finger - watch how much it curles and ask yourself if it's really in tune EVEN IF it looks like it.

  • watch for the hitch hiking thumb

  • For FAST playing

- Keep closer to the balance point

- Shorter bows in faster sections

- When changing strings "think" raising the hand instead of the whole arm EVEN THOUGH the arm actually move

-Location of the bow should be closer to the finger board

  • Don't underestimate the ability of the 3rd finger to pull the 4th finger backwards

  • UPPER POSITIONS ON C& G Strings - wrist and elbow need to be higher and fingers need to be stretched out further...
