Violin Open Strings Exercises
I've started learning the violin. It's something I always told myself I'd do 'later' (which is a pretty bad way to learn something new). So yeh... I just went to the shop, bought the stupid thing and started.
I found a good set of violin tutorials by Alison Sparrow on YouTube and have written down the first set of drills for you from tutorial 5 (I just prefer my notation to sheet music). There are six exercises and I use an image to remember each one as you'll see below. Firstly, here is the original tutorial:Violin Open Strings Exercises
And my transcription with G=1. Should be pretty self explanatory if you watch the video.
1. The Crawl
2. Baby Steps
3. The First Fall
4. Lefts and Rights
5. Downs and Ups
6. Ups and Downs
Here is my progress video FWIW (feedback welcome):
