There is supposedly a difference and this is why the piano will never be a perfectly tuned instrument. However if you can play your violin as much in tune as a piano you should be extremely satisfied.
We use the same fingerings but can sometimes use a different finger based on which note comes before or after in a pattern. For example if you were to play an F# on the D to a C natural on the A you may be better off using the 3rd finger on the F# to avoid sliding the second finger up. Especially when these notes are played quickly and repeatedly.
Made a very simple example:
Don't even ask why I'm up at 2:30am (I'll tell u – I got a call tonight to be at the studio tomorrow with a download link to a song to work on right now) I'm on break right now trying to wake up – asking my wife to get the coffee started
This a great topic though…It is really pronounced when a piano and a string instrument are out of tune together. I like digital keyboards to record with because you can mess with the tunings. But they're s nothing better than the sound of acoustic instruments. I really understand when you need to change your finger patterns based on the next phrase coming up. And using sliding techniques where you will end up with a different finger to start a new musical phrase.
Ok all you Fiddlermen and women… Time to drink coffee and write some guitar parts for Los Angeles Center Studios.
