Subj: Throat Ab and hand position

HEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Mailing list!
I have a question.
Are you sopposed to be able to hit the throat Ab key without moving your wrist?
I cannot seem to be able to, and it kills me in fast passages (like in Ab
arpeggios for example!) I play with my top hand (as looking from the front)
angled with the knuckles higher than the fingertips. Has anyone else had this
problem? and solved it? (this one DURN exercise keeps kicking my butt because
the wrist movement puts me out of position!)
Also I will now take this opportunity to grin for NCSU football for a fine
example of never ever ever giving up in a incredible win over Syracuse.
