You’ll learn the low second finger making it possible to learn the C major and G major one octave scales on the violin. Play along with me!

Play more pieces by learning new notes on the violin!

In this video I explain how to practice a new finger frame, in which the second finger is right next the the first finger instead of the third finger. This makes it possible to play some new notes!


In this violin lesson video I will show you how to play the C and G major one octave scales and you can play along with me and the piano to get them in tune.
