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. One of the main components of this exercise relies on your ear to be the ‘teacher’. Be sure to turn your ears on high alert, the more careful you are with shifting the quicker you become a confident and reliable shifter.
