    Back to a Velocity question. The St. John's book was recommended for velocity studies in another thread. BUT........can someone suggest some in the old version of Arban's?

    One thing that helps a bunch on velocity, but is as not as interesting as watching a violist tune ("do I it turn the peg right or left if I'm sharp?") are the studies for the trill. The half-step trills are pretty easy, but the whole step trills, played cleanly, can benefit many aspects of our playing.
    Have fun!

    all of Arbans scale exercizes are also suitable for velocity studies:
    tie all, tongue all, tie 2 /tongue 2, tongue 1/tie 3, tie 3/tongue one.

    Velocity studies are just another name for "old school" learning by repetition. Instead of a quick cheat from the internet: real, solid BASICS.

    St. Jacome just wrote them out as tidbits for daily practice.

    Robin, thanks for the translation. I've not caught up with the new lingo.
