Is it better to descend C B A on G string with the fingering 4,4,1 or is 4,2,1 better.
Now that we have that straightened out, any more questions?
It all depends where you're coming from and where you're going. It might, after all, be best to do 2-1-4 (with A on the G string). Rhythm and articulation will also play a role in choosing your fingering.
Taken in isolation, there's no compelling reason to choose one fingering over the other.
Yep. I'm not thinking so good today.
I assumed he was asking about a descending C major scale.
From Rabbath method, 4-2-1 in one position for descending C B A on G string (C major scale).
Rabbath says 4-2-1 with a pivot between 2 and 1.
"Rabbath says 4-2-1 with a pivot between 2 and 1."
That is right.
But Pivot in same position (first position) bet. 3rd and 2nd semitone.
What is a pivot?
A pivot is like a shift, but you don't move your thumb. You do it all the time and prob don't realize it.
