79/100 Third Position for Cello

Here comes Miss Mary Mack again:

It is a nice simple little thing for teaching first position finger placement, but, revelation – how about using it to teach third position? Check out the fingering…

You can play this on each string in turn to practice nice clean shifts. I’m rather pleased with this idea.

The first couple of shifts are fairly easy to manage, but the shift to start the bar 5 is just a little trickier for some reason.

I think this would be neat for other string players as well. Over to you…
