There are only four fingers that are used when playing the violin: one (index finger), two (middle finger), three (ring finger), and four (pinky finger). These are indicated in the music with a 1, 2, 3, or 4. A low finger is when a finger is shifted from its normal position on the fingerboard back a half-step without the whole hand changing position.
