    I just listened to her play. Yes, she is great. I do not believe she ever used her ring finger, "a" even once. She appeared to use only p i m. That and a few other things I have noticed on u-tube leads me to believe that what ever works best for oneself is what should be used. I do like string 1 a, 2 m, 3 i, and 4 thru 6 using p for the most part.

    Fingering is often marked in play-ability. Sometimes "p" is used for stress instead. The marked fingering is intention of writer. Red circled part may be in best play-ability.

    Thank you. That makes it clear. It is sort of what I was think but I was not sure. From the little that I can play I am so use to playing strings 6-1, p p p i m a my fingers automatically go that way.
