Hello lovely people, I am probably stretching my self more than a little here but I really want to be able to play at least a few bars of this piece. It is the piece people hum whilst playing 'air violin' to denote their unsympathetic stance towards your sad sad story. I know it's probably violin cliché No.1 but I can't resist.

Using the page shown below; 

http://www.musicnotes.com/shee.....=MN0085261

Starting on the second line as that is the bit I am interested in I so far have;

A1 E2-1-0 A3-0-1-4-3 D3-4-3-2 A2-1 

Which I can play badly without the slurs, however I'm guessing this isn't correct as I don't sew how it is possible to play E-D-G-A in one bow stroke with the above fingerings.

 

Could someone please help me out? Is this another one of those 2nd position situations?

 

Cheers,

Sam.

You can play E,D, G and A in the first position using 3rd and 4th finger in the A and D strings.

Yup but can you do it in one bow stroke?

It's more the string change that troubles me rather than the amount of notes dazed

Of course you can do it in one stroke. I would at least use a 4th finger A so that there is only one string crossing.

Jolly good I will crack on practicing then. I am using my 4th finger, the string change just sounds so bad I wanted to check I wasn't woofing at the wrong pot plant!

LOL. I love your expressions. Keep on woofing your pot plant and have a jolly good crack practicing then. How was that?
