By running scales intervals I mean for example going up in 4ths

A,B,C#,D,B,C#,D,E,C#,D,E,F#,D,E,F#,G# etc

The tricky bit (as always) is the fingering and position shift bits on the G to B string.

Have we a lesson on this or can some one post up their preferences, this is where I always either slow down or mess up, because I'm not using a consistent way.

Hey man! I can make a video chat out of this as I have materials on which I can come up with some interesting fingering patterns for 3rds 4ths 5ths 6ths and 7ths smile.gif Thanks for the suggestion wink.gif

Awesome, I'm really trying to look at where my problems are stemming from and this is one place I've noticed

ah - I've been practicing this pattern as well, and yes - the fingering between the B and G string is tricky. It seems there are 2 ways to use the ring and little finger on the crucial pivot to the next group - either use the 3th finger on the B string and 4th on the G string, or vice versa. I personally have settled on using the 3rd finger on the G and tucking the 4th right behind the 3rd on the B string for that transition. It is backwards from the way I do the rest of the strings, but works great for me.

Also, I avoid using a bridged finger on those strings by extending the pattern - every second string, I slide to the next note on the same string instead of staying in "the box". Seems to help prevent having to bridge with one finger laid across 2 strings.

I'm looking forward to seeing how Cosmin does it!
