Improv D-G-A-B using 4th/5th position. Really do not like my left wrist position - need to work on that.
Hi Ed. Using something other than the first position to play this is something I didn't think of. I thought about your left wrist, and maybe it was bent because you were pressing down really hard on the strings? Maybe not. Just a theory I guess, but your right hand looked tense as well - the arched thumb position while playing..
I'm guessing you chose a higher neck position in order to reduce left hand finger movement when playing different notes. That strikes me as a good idea. Just remember to relax your fingers as much as you can.
