I'm raising this topic since I often use an open string in 1st position in ascending phrases/scales and fourth finger on the next string down in descending ones, particularly when the tempo is allegro or faster. I have an idea that I may have been taught this at some stage, but it could be just an idea which has got into my head. I usually find this principle more convenient in any case, but it would be interesting to learn others' views on this aspect of violin playing.
