All I gotta say about these exercises is WOW. . . . lol

It's coming slow, but I am working at it. This feels like a mind twister and it really requires a great amount of concentration and coordination. Not only that, i'm trying to find a "sweet spot" so that when I put down my fingers to play D or C or B, I don't touch the E string. That in itself has been fun and hilarious at times. Either my fingers are too wide or my landing is not perpendicular enough.

Beth, these exercises are very demanding, but I totally see the benefits. I'm having a great challenging and fun time learning them. Thank you!

I love string crossings (usually). I found the coolest string crossing pattern in a search I did for the Handel Sonata in A major 361. It was so fun, I decided to make this piece our next community project. Look for it soon.
