FRANCIS JOSEPH SANTORI: First finger position.
First, we’ll start with the top of the instrument here. The open notes are C, G, D, A. So your
first note in the scale starting here would be D. So you find your D. There’s your D there.
First finger position. It’s one step up from the nut. This is your nut here. So there’s
your first finger position. Your half finger position, you find your D, then half a step
down, the distance between your D and your nut, which will be your C sharp. So you find
that. There’s your D, there’s your C, and your in a half finger position. Second finger position. Again, your nut, your
D and then your E, which would be here. So you would start with your index finger and
your second finger position.
