Tell me if I have this right:
At the beginning one learns a frame shape and to think of the fingers operating in a fairly uniform way from a base which moves to give access to different strings and positions. Then come extensions upward or downward, and as the music gets more advanced the hand/base moves around more and more to accomodate special situations.
What are some common ways in which the usual/basic principles of left hand function get left behind?
Do some finger patterns require a small hand to shift back and forth a bit while playing from 1 to 4? How about on a viola?
