i happen to have a music sheet used previously by a student and it was marked with finger numbers etc, like the first note "e4" in the beginning of kreisler's prealudium allegro was marked for 4th position; strange when the following notes would be shifted back to the first postion and i saw on a video that it was similarly done by a violinist.
i guess what i'm trying to say is: why the similarity? is there a 'definite' way to play pieces like kreisler and not 'make up'; and the need to be guided by a teacher?
