F3 and F4 are two finger exercise invented by the great Hungarian violin teacher Tibor Varga. It is no accident that they sound like Bartok! They use all the combinations of tones and semitones in one position in a very logical manner. F3 is simply one finger following another while F4 is a combination of finger patterns (and should be learnt after F3 has been fully mastered). They should both be learnt from memory - the patterns are easily learnt - and ALL the fingers should be kept down. This is absolutely critical. It is best to start on 3rd string but they can to be played on all strings and at differing speeds. Learn slowly with very accurate intonation and concentrate on the finger action. When the exercise is finished it can be repeated one semitone higher "ad infinitum". Learn at the beginning with just one pattern to a bow repeated four times. When fluent you can then try twice to a bow and then X2 and X4 on the up bow at double speed. Generally X8 to a bow at speed is enough to fully warm up the left hand. Be careful not to overdue it!
