it means that you should touch the string of the previous note with the indicated finger so as to stop the vibration. 1-4 refer to the left hand fingers and pima to the right hand fingers in the order: thumb, index, middle, ring. It takes a lot of getting used to but it results in much cleaner sound. Worth the effort.
Hey thank you for the quick response.
Does it matter where the "star" shaped sign is in the clef. For example in exercise one of D01, there is this sequence. Exercise one 4th bar. First position b natural b natural, then it goes to 5th bar with the star shaped at the 1st line indicating like being a f natural, and in the bottom there is g natural.
So in this case am I suppose to damp the f note? Or the previous note which was an b.
