Re: Bad advice or not?
I don't see anything wrong with the thumb suggestion (nor any of the
others for that matter). I've made similar suggestions to beginners having
trouble getting a single note. That is to lay your index fingers on the
mouthpiece (horizontally opposed - whoa?) so that only one hole is
exposed. They soon get the one note down pat without the help of fingers
anymore. Just a temporary crutch. But, if they learn to play well that
way, who cares. Watch Toots sometime - talk about unorthodox.
