Ten Minute Technique: Left Hand Tension III (Accessing High Positions)

This lesson specifically addresses problems in left hand tension and discomfort that are associated with playing in high positions, including shoulder pain and injury that many of us experience with prolonged and excessive external rotation in the shoulder joint.

Here I explore options for shifting and string crossing to lower strings that allow us to keep the shoulder in a more neutral range.

These ideas are suitable for more experienced players, but are also ones that I use in introducing less advanced players to higher positions. Enjoy!
