Default Re: Low G to B KAHHHNNNNNN!!!!

An exercise can be helpful to gain more motor control of a notoriously difficult to control finger. Place the fingers flat on a table and lift the ring finger and set it back down. Then lift the pinkie and ring finger. Each movement should rise to the limit of comfortable movement. Just as in chanter work, this should be moderate in tempo, with clear differences between each movement. This is something you can do at various times in most of daily life. In the end, with many repetitions over time you will gain both control and strength.
The older I get, the more certain I am, that everything should be made from blackwood, beeswax, reeds, shellac and bits of string...
