There are two separate questions here:
1. How to train the left hand and arm so that it is comfortable in 7th and 8th position, especially on the g-string?
2. How to produce good intonation in these positions?
I am doing the Sevcik shifting exercises, especially one and eight, and the greatest difficulty seems to be in these positions on the g-string. I'm aware of the need to rotate the elbow and bring the hand around the side of the body, but I still struggle to produce a smooth sound.
