I'm trying to develop my right hand fingers to stay closer together.From what I understand you want them to very lightly touch.So I put a very light rubber band close to the first joint of my fingers.Has anybody heard anything like this before.I gotta be honest it seems to be working very good. Any thoughts?
I've used this with my students for years. Especially for working on excess tension in the pinky and/or a finger. My teacher in college had me do it, and every now and again, if I find dysfunctional tension in those fingers I'll use the rubber band for a few weeks to keep things in check.
Keeping it loose is important, you don't want those fingers turning purple on you! It's a great way to feel the tension built up with an external source.
