 RE: Left Thumb Problems

Many tks, Karen, Jerry and William, your positive advice matches that from two of my comm. band cl'ists-good friends, great teachers, [their skills are beyond mine!] in that "carry on, TRY to do as the books say, but just enjoy playing any way you can" is a reasonable advice-summary. I feel much more confident now in helping an eager student, and will be cautious in asking her to try to adapt to a near-horizontal left thumb position. I had her explore the [45 degree?]thumb position needed on my Selmer alto cl with some success. Will post on results occasionally. Again, thank you-all. Don
