Clear high position notes in fast passages.
Hello I am struggling with playing a clear notes in higher positions in fast passages with legato bowing can you help me? (In Mozart 3) Thanks for the answers!
If you try the same passage at semiquaver=60, how do you get on?
Practise without the bow, and make sure you lift your fingers as little as possible.
Experiment also with how hard you are pressing on the strings when you make the stops.
How expensive is your violin?
Daniel, like others have mentioned, you have to bow closer to the bridge when in high positions. But, also, when fingering especially in high positions, you have to practice on pressing only the string you are playing on, your fingers should not press or touch the other strings (this would dampen your sound). Playing scales in high positions, like Guillermo said, fast, slow, in all bowings, is good to practice all this.
Thanks all for answers!
Try more left hand articulation (bouncy fingers, with a good amount of weight and pad in the finger coming down, without squeezing the neck). On the lower strings esp,, the left hand is often the culprit. Try falso further or closer to the bridge, straight bow - every string and position is slightly different.
