The Ninth Study

The Finger Combinations 1 3, 3 4, 1 4, and 4 1

Part of the Da Capo Press Music Reprint Series book series (DACAPO)


A study of triads on one string for hand expansion and the development of strength and suppleness of the fourth finger. When, in using the customary 1 3 4 fingering, the stretch of the fourth finger may be too great for some hands in the first and second positions (especially in the minor keys when the augmented fifth occurs), substitution of the 1–2–4 fingering is recommended.
