Back with more questions. I use the idea of placing my fingers on the strings comfortably from fourth finger back...in most cases. Also, I under that finger placement...point of contact of finger on string matters. What I need to know is how does that chnage in upper positions (fifth and up) I like the idea that Galamian taught...placing the thumbside of the finger on the string close to dividing the finger in half (but maybe really a third from the finger nail to the half moon shape thingy. Pretty much the fingers are parallel to the finger board. At leasr from my understanding of it and it seems to work well with me in 1-4 positions. Please help me understand what changes take place in finger angle, finger/hand height, and finger placement in upper positions so I have been accuracy in my shifts and intonation.
