Can anyone recommend a stretching exercise I can do with my left hand to hit those 4th finger notes? Preferrably something off the violin so I can do it outside of practise. I'm an older beginner with good sized hands and long fingers. Just can't seem to get out far enough to hit the D-A-E or B - I'm always flat. I've been doing the one where the hand is placed palm down on a surface and the fingers splayed out as wide as possible. Been doing that for a month now without much to show for it.
