I have the same problem. I wrote all my own fingerings in, like I do for all my solo contest pieces, and then the snooty teacher made a comment today how the judges are going to take off points for not using the official fingerings. What should I do? I have a system that works but I don’t want to lose points. Should I play it how it’s comfortable and play it right? Or play it how it was designed and make it uncomfortable? Help?!

A rather harsh response. I’m seeking similar information but for mandolin, obviously I’ll not seek your help.

There are some excellent free violin fingering charts available from http://www.moraneducation.com/24Keys/Violin/5

Well worth a look.

there you go. Get a teacher next time to help you do the fingerings.

I can’t think of a specific reason there would need to be a fingerings engraved on the sheet music. I’d follow along with a fingering chart, and decide on which alternate fingerings work best if you have selections between strings and neck positions.
