The link is in the magazine. Unless you have a digital subscription you can't access it.

Bo and the other left handers need to come in here and do the sunglasses thing.

Must admit I've never observed any kind of suckage apperature on my left hand. I think we need some proof.

But ... I must use my left hand. If I use my right, it is over too quickly.

You be careful; people in masks can't be trusted.



My left hand does kinda suck. Not so much coordination and separation, but my wrist movement is not nearly as developed as the right. Almost awkward by comparison.
My right is Steve McQueen, but my left is Steve Urkel.

Another thing to check out on this topic --- Steve Smith's new educational release, "Pathways of Motion." It explores Smith's journey (ha ha) toward a deeper and better matched grip technique (moving away from traditional). I've been exploring the same transformation in my playing....moving away from trad....so the idea that Smith has an entire educational product dedicated to this is exciting to me. I haven't checked it out yet, but I bought my copy and it's "on deck." FYI.
