In a certain piece i should play simultaneously e on string 1, c on string2, then also simultaneously f on str1, d on str2. It is suggested for this second chord to use fingering 1 4.
I do not manage to play this sequence legato.
Any suggestions how to accomplish this?
I take this to mean that you want to transition from e/c to f/d (and back to e/c) smoothly, so the pairs of notes sound legato and are not muted or interrupted by longish pauses between sounding each successive pair of notes.
Assuming e/c is played with 1 on second string, then you can focus on practicing just the transition with your left hand - no right hand involved. Just let your brain learn how to get from 1 on second string to the new shape of 1 on first, and 4 on second. Do this back and forth - each time focusing on just changing from one "shape" to the other, and placing all fingers involved in the shape at the same time, "snapping" them to the strings with confidence (which will come as your brain learns the shapes and the transition).
