Hello Mr. Fiddlerman, I was wondering if you could provide a finger chart for the higher notes (2nd & 3rd) position, for someone who is teaching themselves? Preferable one that not only shows the keys but finger position according to the notes on the bar (Sheet Music.) I see you have some videos about it, but I really neat a chart to refer to. I have looked all over on the internet but has only found charts with 1st positioning. Can you please help?

Hi Adenium!

Until Fiddlerman can get you what you need, maybe this will help.

Adenium,

The resources Emily posted are good ones. 

I know that I was looking for the same thing when I was first working on 2nd & 3rd positions. Lots of 1st position charts out there, but hard to find 2nd & beyond by themselves.

Here's a website that has worksheets for free that you may be looking for:

http://www.fingerboardworkbook.....#038;s=590

This website also has a blank worksheet.  I used to use that one all the time.  I'd write out the fingerings for the scale/measures of music I was working on.  I found it easier to isolate the specific notes.  I had worksheets all over the place for a while.  Don't know if that means I'm a "visual" learner--I guess people learn in different ways.

Also, not sure if it helps, but here's a website that has 1 to 3 octave scales with suggested fingerings for shifting.

@Adenium welcome to the forum. Hope to hear some of your progress with the violin soon. 

I've been viewing several of your beautiful videos on your 4seasonphotos pages. They are great and your choice of music perfectly matches the mood of the videos. Hope to hear you soon accompanying your own videos.

Did you like any of the above suggested resources? Let me know if you are still looking and maybe be more specific about how you would want it to look. I am open to doing things that will help learning violinists in any way I can. 😁
