I'm teaching myself to play the violin and only just starting on the notes and how to read the music, but i am getting a little stuck on knowing what note to play on what string from reading the sheet music?
example: how to know to play the D note on the G string or the D note on the A string?
If that makes sense? From what i'm gathering the sheet music will tell you what finger you'll be playing and therefore with no notes repeating on the one finger, you will know what note to play on what string?
But i have seen sheet music with no numbers in reference to 1st, 2nd finger etc. so that's confusing me.
just want confirmation if I'm close or if I'm totally off!
