Violin methods generally pass from the first position to the second, from the second to the third, and so on in numerical order. To go directly from the first to the third position seams simpler and easier. Later, the pupil will find his second position between the first and the third. Moreover, this manner of proceeding will allow us to begin, at the same time, the highly important study of the shifts. To learn the fingerings of the positions seems, at first, to be the difficult point. Yet this is only a matter of memorizing figures.

Take a pupil who already knows his positions, and give him a fairly rapid slurred passage going from one position to another. The difficulty which he will encounter in playing it will be precisely in the changes of position which we call "shifts." To forestall this difficulty at the outset by numerous exercises in shifting,is absolutely indispensable It is important, in order to shift easily, that the pupil should hold the palm of the hand well away from the neck of the instrument, and especially avoid resting1 the hand against the edge of the violin when arriving at the third position. The thumb should not be bent round the bottom of the neck. This would cause a displacement of the position of the hand, and would later render the shift from the third to the fifth position very awkward.
