Good question Laffesta. I’m also a beginner and I was wondering the exact same thing. Should the space between the thumb and the first finger be touching the neck or should there be a space between the neck and my left hand at all times?
I’ve noticed that when I maintain a space between the neck and my hand then the positioning of the fingers is easier but it also feels less stable. So, I don’t know what’s best…
Who can give us advice on what the correct position of the left hand is?
