Extending the Fourth Finger
It is frequently necessary or advisable to extend the fourth finger beyond the seventh fret on all of
the strings, since this frequently makes the picking easier, by confining the work to a single string,
or by simplifying the crossing of the strings. In each of the following Examples, this finger is ex -
tended to the eighth fret, thus making the note a half step hig-her than the seventh fret and the next o-
pen string,the preceding finger in the meantime remaining firmly on its note.
These are to be played rather slowly and with careful attention to the fingering.
