I'm working on the first Bach suite (why do I torture myself so willingly?) and I'm having trouble with the second last measure, the F# C D arpeggio. If I try to do it F#(3) and C(4) in third position, either the F# is flat or the C is sharp.
I'm also having trouble four measures after the fermata, where it's E A(4) B D(0) G(1 in third pos) A C G C# Bb A Bb Bb A G# A. Do I just need to reach for that C#, or should I just play that in first position? I feel like the adapter was looking for the D string color, rather than A string.
Is there another way I can play those?
FYI my hands are small and I have short pinkies (#blessed).
Also, I'm using the Schirmer edition, adapted and revised by Louis Svcénski, if that helps.Tweet
