help with tricky 16th notes in La Folia

When violinists tackle running sixteenth notes with some string crossings, sometimes they are frustrated because they can’t get comfortable and secure even after practicing the music for a while. For instance in La Folia you might have difficulty with the sixteenth note variation. Of course you have to spend a little time planning your fingerings and finger patterns, and make sure you understand the string crossings. After you've gotten those things a little organized though, it is efficient and more fun to practice the music with a friend or your teacher playing the bass line, so you’ll practice in a way that makes musical and rhythmic sense and makes the “hard notes” enjoyable to play.
