# What note is higher than C?

C: A – C is the highest note, but note B is a different note.

T: A is note A, and so on.

In this way the whole system is the same as that of music notation.

How much space are there between notes?

E: The more space between notes, the more complicated (or complex) the note is. And the more space between notes, the more difficult it is to play, since the notes must be played with an elastic, unsteady, and in turn unstable tension.

T: A space of 2 spaces between notes is the same as two spaces between notes multiplied by the distance between them, or 1.6/2.

E: The most common space between notes is .5 intervals (half-steps) between notes.

How many degrees does the fingering system make a note of?

E: Two degrees means, that the fingering system makes another note of the same degree as the note played.

T: Three degrees means, that the fingering system makes another note of the same degree as the first note played.

E: Two degrees is the most natural fingering for each string.

How often should the fingers be played? How many fingers?

E: The fingers should be played in full range of motion, and in tune as much as possible.

T: For example, play the 3rd and 5th notes of C. In that case a note of four degrees would be played by four fingers, and a note of three degrees by three. This implies, that it is more natural to play the third finger first and the fifth finger second.

How many fingers are allowed?

E: For every two finger strings the fingering rules should be followed. And for example, in C, four fingers would be played by four fingers for A, 4 fingers for D, 3 fingers for E, and 2 fingers for F. Thus, a note of four degrees, or 3 degrees would be played by only two fingers. This implies, that it is more natural to play the index finger first, and then the pinky first, but to make a note of six degrees by only two fingers. Thus, it is more natural to play notes with four and six fingers, in which case they should be played in full range of motion, in tune, and in a specific key (like G major or C major)
