  1. Can you rest the pad of your index finger against the pad of the thumb or would this restrict it too much do you think ? Not tried it yet and don’t want to get into restrictive habits so concerned about varying what you say.

  2. would it be the same if i made my pointer finger go first after my thumb goes up then all my other fingers follow after..

    it’s kinda like opposite of using the thumb then pinky etc.
