Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any tips for those of us with double jointed thumbs? I find when I try to bend my thumb in order to hold the bow properly the knuckle closer to the wrist than the nail (think it’s called the trapezium) keeps collapsing and it’s very uncomfortable to play like this. I have the same problem with my right hand and keeping my thumb on the violin neck.
