High “c” on the fiddle
Another fiddle discussion! Recently I learned a tune which goes up to the high “c” on the fiddle. (the notes in that particular part go abc) Originally I was using my pinky on the “b” like normal and then sliding or sometimes (and often unsuccessfully) jumping up to the “c” with the same finger. I showed it to my teacher and she suggested I go into 3rd position by using my second (instead of the usual third) finger on the “a”, then my third (instead of the pinky) finger on the “b” and then the pinky on the high“c”. It seems to work well, but I am curious as to how others may approach the same problem. I imagine not that many tunes go up to the high “c”, or are there loads more that do?
