Do Your Ears Hang Low is a great song for developing the stretch 3rd finger on the G string. When you play this note be sure not to stretch the finger from an ‘E string Position hand’ . Your teacher can show you, but the way I do it is to have my left elbow straight down to the floor on the Estring, A string – slightly leaning toward your belly, D string – even more to the right in front of the belly and the G string (while your weight is on the forward foot your left arm as now moved in even further to the right. This way your fingers are not moving our of position any more than they do when they are in E string position. The stretch 3 is the same movement on the E as it is on the G.
