Assuming there is an insane piece with changes key every single 4 bars, and I must unite all thumb positions the same within every position (e.g. the thumb does not shift when staying at the 2nd position) In 2nd position, G String Should the thumb be anchored and opposite to the index finger playing Bb or B? does that apply to other positions too, for a safe orientation? thank you
Hello all, I'm working up some designs for finger planes and I'd love to hear what you all think of what I have so far. A key element I'm trying to work in is some way of applying force with the palm while retaining the control in the fingertips. I'm not alone in suffering from really sore fingers when using finger planes, I'm sure, but I find fixed palm rests unbearable. The seems to give far too much leverage to allow any positional feedback on how the plane is sitting on the work, so I find the blade skips in and out as it is cammed off the wood. Does this tally with your experiences
