4th Finger (Pinkie)


Recommended Posts

My pinkie fingers are very short. What I do is:

1. right hand  -- use a Russian instead of Franco-Belgian bow-hold. Since pinkie finger is just sort of floating up, it's shortness doesn't matter.

2. left hand -- scales + scales +scales. If you're in first position, use the pinkie to finger the fifths. If you're in third, feel the way the 4th finger can establish the tonality of everything. Pinkie is strong. Pinkie is smart. You just need to figure out a way to work with it!
