I understand finding locations for third position but how about tone production on 'D' and 'G' strings ? I can never match the tone quality of first position and your video is hiding your sounding point, etc. I'm beginning to think I must play full hair width to have any hope of improvement (?)
Any tips ?
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
Perfect, I am to a point in the song "Memory" where the key changes to four flats, ABDE. There is a point where I need to play Eb and the next note is F on the E string. I know I can't play Eb on the E string. In this phrase there are 10 Eb notes and 2 F's. Going back and forth was going to be difficult and I was just going to post a question about the best way to learn either 2nd or 3rd pos. I had a bracket chart from another website, dogs probably ate it. What note is first finger in 2nd position on the A string? They seem to have a thing for fingering charts. Would you recommend this sliding method to find 2nd position?
That will work just right, for A string. The next phrase is similar but on the D string, I don't have the music in front of me, but I had to give up for the night. I was using C as first finger and it will work, just need to get used to finding the position. The next phrase has an Ab playing on the A string, I can reach G# on the D string with my pinky. So far it sounds like crap...lol
Thank you for your help.
