SEVCIK : Shifting the Position and Preparatory Scale Studies, Op. 8- Schirmer’s Library of Classics Volume 848 Violin Method


The chief difficulty in these exercises consists in shifting (changing the position) so smoothly that it is hardly perceptible. Shifting downward, from a higher to a lower position, offers peculiar difficulties. In order to effect it smoothly, hold the violin firmly with the chin, and try to use the thumb as little as possible when shifting. later these exercises are even to be practiced without using the thumb, which is then held under the neck of the instrument. It is highly beneficial to practice these exercise detache at first, and then legato in moderate tempo.
