The endorsements of Tom's book by Ricardo Morales and Howard Klug don't necessarily imply their endorsement of every detail the book contains. Looking at a couple of Youtube videos of Klug and Morales (and having seen a good deal of Morales in live performance), neither seems to rest his left pinky (or his right one) on any particular key.

I agree that we're free to do this or dismiss it out of hand. And I admit that I "just don't understand what's being presented." But, if you're citing authorities (beyond Tom Ridenour himself) for support, at least the authorities might actually be relevant. They're endorsing the book, not necessarily (or apparently, from their own playing) this technique.

More than a published source, I'd much rather see examples of this approach in actual use. Do you know of any players whose YouTube (or any) videos would provide examples?
