Worked on the F# first, just by itself. Then, added the extension to A. At first, had to work on my left arm balance since I found my left arm balancing on the top of the cello body after extending with the thumb and 2,3,4.
After doing the F# and A exercise a about 5 times, I also worked on this section that follows about 3 times.
I’ll likely repeat this entire practice tomorrow, along with the D major scale in two octaves (since it uses the F#).
