Remember, however, that thousands of people have taught
themselves to play the violin simply by following guides to the
notes such as we have given you here. With the first, second
and third fingers, and sometimes the fourth finger, they play
all the well-known old favorite songs, many simply arranged
classical pieces, and all kinds of popular dance music. They
may not have the tone of a Kreisler or a Heifetz, but they do
play a lot of music and have a lot of enjoyment.
Actually, finding and making the notes is not as difficult as
is sometimes supposed. Your fingers hit the right spots naturally
and easily after you have practiced for a while. More practicing
and playing more tunes will develop the strength of the third
and fourth fingers.
