I came across this beautiful little melody know as Eyecatch. The sheet;

http://www.freewebs.com/infini.....ecatch.pdf

I noticed something weird when I looked up the tunes. The first three I don't get, then the 4th one is a B. Is the three first combination notes or is it for five string violin? Can someone please explain this for me?

this piece is in EbM and the notes you don't understand are on the E string.  As you keep going up higher on the E string  the notes are E open FGABCDEFGA.

 

the beginning of this piece is C D Eb Bb C C D Eb C F Eb Eb Bb Ab G Bb F Bb.

You do this by playing in 3rd position.

Here is a link to the fingering chart for 3rd position.

Actually try it in 5th position at least to right before the 2nd measures Bb.
Even better is 4th position until the pick-up to the second measure where you would shift to 5th and you could go back to 1st on the pick-up to the 3rd measure.

You da man Pierre. I looked at this again and it does make it a lot nicer to play your way.  I was trying to help but maybe I shouldn't help in maters like this.duncecap

@ Pierre...

 

In general... how far up on a string do you normally go before jumping to the next one?

Like playing the A string up in 2nd position would you jump over to the E string or continue up the A string for a few more notes until they no longer are possible to sustain any kind of musical similarity?

I notice the further UP the fingerboard you play, obviously the further away from the fingerboard the strings get so my other question is vibrato... hmmm. Easier on the next string over of continue upward with taller strings?

I tend to play positions based on phrasing and sound.
There are so many factors that it's hard to generalize.
As far as vibrato is concerned, you get a much bigger vibrato if you play way up on the fingerboard because the distance for changing tones are much less when the string is shortened. The height is no issue for me but I suppose it could be for fresher fingers.
