Lesson: Right Hand Thumb Position and Movement

Gohar Vardanyan gives a lesson on right hand thumb position and movement. Brought to you by Strings By Mail and their excellent YouTube channel. This is a great lesson for beginners and review for intermediates. As she outlines, make sure to start with posture and position first because there is not much you can do if your position is off. I like the discussion on stability and not disturbing the position while playing different techniques. You can also take a look at my video and suggested exercise: Right Hand Thumb Position.
