I have a chord that requires a different hand position from the music surrounding it. Because it is only one note, I think it is unnecessary to indicate recommended position instead of recommended fingering. How do I show which finger number belongs to which note? I've come up with this:
but there is uncertainty about what string the notes are on at a glance (the whole reason for adding fingerings in the first place) and about whether the fingerings go from top to bottom or bottom to top. How would this be notated?
Note: I realize that sustained three note chords are (almost) impossible to play on a violin/viola/cello, but they can still be rolled, and the same problem applies to double stops.
EDIT: The fingering in the image is wrong. It should be 5 (or 4+), 3, 1. The fingering is for viola, starting on C string.
