Study-Practice Notes…

  • Technique: Never throw your hands at the keys. Use a prepared attack and let gravity drop the weight of your arms/hands/fingers into each chord with just enough support to keep your hands and fingers from collapsing.
  • No flams between the left and right hands!

LIKES really matter in getting the word out! If you learned something here today, please take a moment to comment on and “LIKE” the lessons that speak to you. Thanks and peace.
