I know this topic is a little old, but this is brilliant. So many people say they "figure it out," me, too, but I'd love to hear more about the reasons behind good fingerings so I can "figure it out" a lot faster. I sometimes find it hard to make progress on a piece just because I can't decide on the best fingering (for the fretting hand) and keep changing. You seem to know more about this. Can you point me to more info on this?KlaBueBaer wrote: ↑Thu Mar 30, 2017 11:50 amLH Fingerging can be a) vertical, b) horizontal or c) diagonal oriented.
The mostly used vertical oriented fingering of the left hand depends on the first finger (aka index finger). The position of the index finger is "glued" on the fret (eg. III., V., VII, ...) and the others fingers are used for position V.+1, V.+2 till V.+4. This will minimize the movement of the hand and give a maximum on stability. The index finger is often used in this case as an anchor.
Wikipedia said: "In common with other classical stringed instruments, classical guitar playing and notation use formal positions of the left hand. The 'nth position' means that the hand is positioned with the first finger over the nth fret."
a special case of LH Fingering is the "campanella" style.
This accurately reflects my experience. Left-hand fingering is difficult. There can be many possibilities for each beat and unless you have to play F or F# on the sixth string, the possibilities and combinations are nearly endless. In addition to what finger to use, there is the issue of what finger to use as an anchor, when to remove each finger, when to slide the same finger to the next position on the same string, which finger to use to guide the slide, when to use a finger as an axis, and so on and so on.
