    Hi Anthony, how are you? Hope you're doing well.


    I have small hands, and I thought that is the problem on my technique, but I realize that are great players with small hands, you, John Patitucci, Victor Wooten.. So, the problem is my technique and my stretching..

    I realize that when I try to do some phrases, my arm moves a lot, and my fingers not so much.. My fingers are "stiff", don't move softly as much as I try to relax, I'm trying to built some technique exercises from very slow to higher speeds, but when I get at higher speeds, my hand and arm hurts a lot and my fingers don't move as I want.

    I want to have flexible fingers, and be able to stretch more my fingers. How can I get there?

    Other thing, my middle and "ring finger" are to close, it bothers me a lot, can I fix that?

    Thank you so much,
