This week I’ll be looking a little closer at the bass octave pattern and how we can use it to develop minimal movement in our fretting hand technique.

    Everyone has their own physical limitations.I have quite large hands and long fingers but to put my fingers in the positions shown here puts way too much stain on my thumb and wrist.In order for me to play an octave with my little finger,I have to move either my thump or other fingers.Otherwise I risk injury.Same with playing a scale.Can’t do it with my thumb in 1 position but must slide some because I can’t get my fingers to stretch apart far enough.I haven’t found this to hinder my playing for I can play as clean and fast as I want to.
