@ Michael, the reason I lifted up my fingers when I play fourth finger is because as of now, my fourth finger can’t reach the correct place. I lift up the other fingers so I can reach further down the fingerboard. I am still learning to stretch it. I will definitely try to practice with my elbow above the instrument. Thanks!
@ Mariko, you will get there soon! Just keep practicing. I don’t practice as much as I should, or want, always something else on my mind and I get distracted. Thanks for commenting and watching!
