Working on not curling my pinky so that it is ready to play its role as 4 when needed.  I think this entails a little more motion in my arm to press down the string and less with my fingers.  I seem to remember being that that particular tension which curls the pinky actually comes from the elbow.    Anyway, that’s the theme for this week of practice,  I just need to see if I can find some way to depress the string that doesn’t distort my hand shape.

A mirror was recommended to me, although I’m still using my phone’s camera as a mirror.  I have this phobia of hanging things on walls, namely that I’ll make a mess of the wall or use the wrong fastener.   So, my goal for this week is to get a floor length mirror and put it up in my little studio area.
