How to Install Weston's Fantastic Finger Guides
Installing your Fantastic Finger Guide
Simply peel it, place it and start playing. Watch me install a Fantastic Finger Guide on a violin.
Here are step by step written on how to install your Fantastic Finger Guide.
Verify that the size of your instrument and the size of the guide match. A 1/2 size violin should have a 1/2 size guide.
Tune your instrument and lay it on a flat surface that is waist height.
Peel your Fantastic Finger Guide off of the sticker paper following the colored outline of the guide.
Slide the guide under the strings near the bridge. Then rotate the guide so the triangles are facing towards the scroll of the instrument.
Hold the wings up and slide up until the top of the guide is touching the nut of the instrument.
Center the triangles at the top and squares at the bottom under the strings.
If you need to adjust the Fantastic Finger Guide, do so in the first 30 minutes. Once it sets, it will not adjust without cracking the ink on the decal.
Congratulations you are now ready to play. Check out the getting started tutorials for learning how to play the violin.
