CVB1 Lesson 12

Creative Violin Book 1

In Lesson 12 we will start with the Second Grip.
The second finger will move from against the 3rd finger to against the 1st finger.
We will refer to this as the “low 2nd finger”.
We will also cover the Dorian Scale and syncopation in the process.
Nice styles from Romania, Hungaria and Ireland again in this lesson.
Again the “Overview” tab is the full lesson, followed by the “play-alongs” in the next tabs.
