How do you know it should be played in the A string? To me it looks clear/logical to play that first bar in the third position (D string) and stretch 4th finger to the harmonic/flageolet. In the second bar is more clear which position should be played. The 3-3 fingering in the second beat makes a inevitable glissando and the A (highest note) should be ...

Usually, the 0 on non-open string note indicates that this note should be played using flageolet. In your example, there are three occurences of flageolet: the d'' in the first bar and the a'' and the last d'' in the second. This is quite natural if you play this in the third position: with flageolet, you don't have to switch to the a string (or e string, ...

Yes, this will be a harmonic. Probably the octave harmonic at the half way point of the D string. This does suggest, though, that the preceding notes are played on the D string, higher up the neck.

The layout there is far more logical. It's the type of layout used by a lot of music authoring software too (good authoring software would have configurable ...

When I say use hand here it always excludes thumb. When I use '&' in the following list it does not refer to the keyboard key. - Use left hand for keys 1-4&5 using index finger for both 4&5 - Use ...

If you're sure you want to use virtual piano there are some example songs that you can pull up within the software. If you already know the tune you don't have to worry about rhythm and it will help your muscle memory to remember certain patterns of notes. A better idea is probably to purchase a really cheap piano keyboard. A quick amazon search for me ...

Generally, the best fingering to use for pentatonic scales are groupings of twos and threes. A grouping of two would involve the thumb and either the index or even middle finger. A grouping of three would involved the thumb, index and middle OR thumb, middle and ring finger. Speaking generally again, a good rule of thumb (pun intended) is to experiment ...
