So which notes can you play on the violin?

Well you’ll notice when you look at a violin it’s empty. There aren’t any keys like on a piano or frets on a guitar, so you actually have to find your notes

First we need to know how the violin fingerboard works…

The shorter the string length, the higher the note, so the higher up the string, the smaller the distances

In the middle of the string you find one octave higher. Half way up that distance left is another octave. and so on and so on until you reach the end of the violin fingerboard to the highest A on the violin. Note that the range of the violin is about 4 octaves and starts relatively high compared to a range of a piano or a cello.

    The fingerboard map is always at my sheet-standard. I easily can see which fingers are next to each other in higher positions. The poster also shows how the distance between the fingers is getting smaller in higher positions. And the circle of fifths is a great help! The colours refer to each key.
