Forth Finger Strength

Many string players have a smaller and weaker 4th finger and as a result trills and vibrato suffer in comparison with the other three fingers. Donald Weilerstein tries to avoid using the 4th finger in heavy legato passages and many other violinist do the same. My 4th finger is of medium strength and I always use finger 3 to help it along with vibrato.

Any thoughts about this…
