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.
