Yes, I believe that I do. I was sitting across the table from you and
my memory has reversed everything. Sorry.

<><> but it has to be said that some pianists play very successfully
with straightish fingers.

....which used to aggravate me tremendously when I tried to learn to

fingers, curve your fingers. curve your fingers", and then I saw more
than a couple of skilled players keeping their fingers straight.

Thanks for the explanation,
