Now in these flat keys I want you to
still concentrate on really getting some
sustain out of the instrument remember
to relax use the weight of your arm.
To get the sound to sustain, don't press
your thumb into the back of the neck.
Now, at this point,
you might want to send me a video.
But remember,
before you send a video in, check out
what I've said to the other students.
And I will take a look at yours and
give you some feedback.
