Im trying to learn third/forth position but can't quite get the notes down. I can make the jump but after the first note I'm lost. Any suggestions for a good chart or other method to nail this?  Thanks

What book are you using? I'm using the violin version of this book, which is a real helpful book, so I imagine the viola counterpart would be, too. *link for Introducing the Positions for Viola*

Hi Ripton,

I also just began with 3rd position a few weeks ago. First assignment from my teacher was to go learn the names of the notes in 3rd position on each string. 
Oh man, was I shocked to find myself coming up blank on something I thought would be a breeze. 

So I had to revert to a position of (uncharacteristic) patience. Instead of learning all of 3rd position in one week, I went and did one string a week. Now I'm getting to the E-string and it's just starting to sink in. 

This is the book I'm using:
