Phase II


PHASE II – CUE SHEET (samples and notes)

2 octave major and harmonic minor scales – in groupings alarunsfrom KBCE (notes)
Advanced Options: (Ph2a, do 3 octaves, add in Sevcik bowings)
    C,  a, F, d,  Bb,  g, Eb,  c, Ab, f, Db, bb,F#, d#,   B, g#,  E, c#,  A,  f#,   D, b, G, e
    1   2  3   4   5     6   7    8/ 1    2   3    4   5     6    7   8 /   1   2    3    4    5   6  7  8
Bowings:      Change bowing articulation with each group of 8 – slur, staccato, colle, spicatto, staccato slurred, spicatto slurred
Permutate groupings and bowings daily until every scale has worked every grouping and bowing.

LEFT HAND STRENGTH and AGILITY 

    TRILL EXERCISE Advanced Options: (Ph2a, use a metronome for evenness and speed) (sample)
       *1st position on D string            also in:
        01, 02, 04, 14, 12, 24                    *4-finger, d  in saddle on G string: d d#e f = 1 2 3 4
        0141, 0121, 0242, 1242                *thumb position:  g a b c = T 1 2 3 use Major, minor, chromatic tetrachords
        012421, 021421, 412012              *high thumb on d harmonic,on G string: d d#e f = T 1 2 3 use chromatic, Phrygian, Lydian,
        0124, 4210, 0214, 4120                         Harmonic m. tetrachords
                              
        Bowing:  down bow, 4 groupings (12,12,12,12,) up bow same 4 groupings                                               
                               
    PARALLEL 5THS 2 octaves on D & G strings – in D maj.,  Eb maj., and  E harm. min. (sample)
    Advanced Options: (Ph2a, use a metronome for evenness and speed)
        Fingering:  1 is always on D str., 4 (or 3 in upper positions) on G str. Use 2 on G str. for tritone.
        Bowings:   1.  use one-fingered scale bowing (see pre-phase if you’ve forgotten)
                          2.  sets of cross string patterns (from KBCE or Zimmerman Bowing Book)
                          3.  up a third, back a step using one-fingered scale rhythm

    ROTATION progressing chromatically up the G and D strings (sample)
    Advanced Options: (Ph2a, use metronome as above, add bowing variations from Sevcik or Zimmerman)
    start  in saddle with 1 on a on the D str. and 4 on e on the G str. progress down by half steps, then up into thumb as far a 3 on d.
         lower positions:                                upper positions:
            4 2— 1— 4—                                  3 2— 1— 3—
            1— 4— 2— 1                                  1— 3— 2— 1
       
Chromatic scales – 3 octaves (notes)
 Advanced Options: (Ph2a, add slurred stacatto and slurred spicatto)
Stop at each octave to check harmonic underpinning
Bowings: slur one octave to a bow, then two octaves at a time, eventually slur three octaves in one bow.  
Spicatto separate in one, two and three octaves
Let starting point progress from low E chromatically to Eb on D string (if your fingerboard allows)
        e, f, f#, g, g#, a, bb, b, c, c#, d, eb

A harmonic minor arpeggios – 2 octaves in descending diatonic progression (notes)
Advanced Options: (Ph2a, do 3 octaves)
a,  g#°,  F,  E7,  d,  C+,  b°,  a
Groupings of 1, 2, 3 and 4 notes as in Phase-1
Bowings:  separate, slurred, dotted slurs, staccato, colle, spicatto, staccato slurred, spicatto slurred and various creative combinations of three and four note patterns (use Sevcik.)
