Countdown ~ a tutorial on shifting

Here is a basic exercise to get you started on the ever dreaded or, oh so exciting process of shifting. The primary objective is to work from the point of view of the thumb, thus training the arm to do the work. Doing this will align all 4 fingers just by moving the the thumb to the ‘right’ place.
