Full day of teaching, so had to take a shortcut to get the hands in shape during the time I had for myself to practice! This is the second exercise from Dounis’ Daily Dozen - rediscovering that natural elasticity in the hand / springiness in the joints. Played softly and trying to execute with as much rhythmic and motor precision as possible. Focusing on the active lifting of the fingers and their gentle, passive placement on the fingerboard. Additionally, coordination and supple shifting (guided by the flexibility wrist and adjustability in contact point between finger and string) are tested.
