A few left hand questions...

  1. Hi Patrick,

    I had a few questions about incorporating elements of the rabbath left hand techniques. I took some lessons with one of your former students in Vancouver BC but for the last few months have been working on my own and have arrived at a few questions about some fundamentals in the technique.

    What's your opinion about using a 4-finger technique in conjunction with pivoting in the left hand? My roomate just switched to 5ths tuning and is using this technique (even down low!).

    Do you ever shift into a pivoted position? Either forward pivoted or back pivoted.
