Thank you so much for the tips and encouragement, Michael! I will give those pinkie drils a try… I’ve been aware that it happens a bit, but I wasn’t sure why. Yes, those double stops can be troublesome. 😉 I’ve really enjoyed arranging stuff for solo violin, and then I realize I actually to have to practice what I arrange because I get carried away with adding all sorts of challenging stuff! LOL! Yes, I do teach violin as well as piano. I will make more of an effort to poke around the forums, I’ve been really busy this past couple of weeks… but things should let up at bit.
