I needed something to get me going in the morning so I collected some scales (big whoops!)   BUT, there are rules:

The first G in the G scale is open string.

The first D in the D scale is open string.

No other notes in all four scales are to be played open string.

The last four notes in the D scale are in 3 rd position.

If this exercise is too easy for you then just jump up to FM warp speed for added benefits.

Don't spill your coffee.

Phew, it's Tea-time here so I have missed the moment.
Jkg, looks like a good exercise to me. Individual bowing for each note?

Be creative with bowing ........ good idea !

Also neat to play in sequence for the chromatic effect  ..... i.e. G, A flat, A steps  ..... ( how did D get in there dazed

I find it easier to play going down than going up the scales.  That's strange violin-student

Devoted students can play the exercises at any time of day smile

Seriously, this is a very annoying but worthwhile group.

Agree, for exam purposes I have been learning long bow in major notes, 2 notes to 1 bow thereafter.
Better up than down! 4th finger going up usually, but open coming down. I have no spine!
(helps me to get intonation back on track)

Great idea to give people something to work on Oliver. 🙂

I think my love of scales stems from my love of fishingdancing
