Hi, i'm a high school student and though i have a private teacher, i usually do the majority of my learning by myself because i've surpassed the teacher in many aspects. i've been learning the caprices and i am so confused about how to achieve certain chords. for example, in op. 24, variation 6, right after the first repeat, there's a passage of double stops that seem almost impossible to stretch your fingers that far to play. a and c#..then b and d using 1 and 4..how is that possible? since i don't have a teacher doing this with me i just don't know what to do. maybe do it on the g and d or d and a? iii dunno. any help appreciated.
also, is there a certain caprice that is ideal to start with? i've been concentrating on op.1 because it's the first one :p
