4th finger on the G-string. This one is the most difficult one because it feels so far away. Check your body position that you keep a straight posture. You can help a bit with the left elbow. Also try to avoid tension. CVB1 45

Here is a serious challenge for you, Oh Suzanna. The 4th finger should sound the same (in pitch) as the next open string. Normally you might choose to play this song with no 4th finger (instead open E-string), but I put in this fingering for exercise purpose. This lesson is about training the 4th finger, so here is a good one. CVB1 47

Extra training 4th finger

I added one of the free video’s from the “How-To” series, about training the 4th finger. This is a good moment to start, so play along with me. CVB1 Extra training 4th finger

video

  • Am I playing too fast?
    Hover over the video, click on “1x” and choose your speed.
  • Do you want to repeat part of the video?
    Hover over the video, click on “AB” then set the beginning point with “i” and the end point with “o”.

Let’s improvise

Now let’s add the 4th finger to our improvisations. We will limit the notes to 1 string only, so no string changes yet. We’ll use open string, 1, 2, 3 and 4 (The 4th finger ‘replaces’ the next open string)

    Xander provides excellent feedback in weekly’s live classes which is very important to improve intonation and fix problems like keeping up the rhythm of the music partiture. 4th finger requires a lot of practice and by playing these songs along with getting feedback make things easier. The secret as Xander proposes is to devote at least 30 minutes per day to practice.
