Yes, I know I sound like a glutton for punishment, but I checked out @Fiddlerman's version of Amazing Grace. Talk about more than I can chew! Any who, I got to bar 16 and was stumped. While you're playing a G on the D string (3rd finger), you play C, B, A, and B on the G string. The issue I have is that you also need the 3rd finger to play the initial C, then the 3rd finger is only used on the D string. How do you do that?
In the first Suzuki book, there is a similar stop on two strings with one finger, but it is in the opposite direction. In other words, in that piece, you play a D on the A string (3rd finger), then an A in the E string (also 3rd finger), but you roll your finger outwards, easy to do as that's in the direction of your wrist and your 3rd finger doesn't have to come off the A string. In @Fiddlerman's Amazing Grace, however, the 3rd finger has to come off the G string.
Any explanation on what my 3rd finger has to do will be greatly appreciated. I still have a lot of work to do with double stops, but I really like his version of Amazing Grace - it sounds great - but can't get past that bar. This same issue is once again repeated in bar 32.
Oh yea, now I really want ta learn that.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
