Pattern #4: Is the D# supposed to be typically played by the 3rd finger or the 4th?  I don't see that pattern in the Galamian book and the distance between the C with the 2nd finger and the D# is hard to reach with 3rd finger.

The only scale I see that C, D# pattern is F# Minor and that isn't listed in Fiddlermans chart.  Now the other ones use 4th finger but then again the first finger is extended so that is natural.  But in this pattern the first B on the A string is not flat so the hand is contracted.

Perhaps you should just play the D# as an Eb. Just use the 4th finger for what would have been an open string otherwise.
