    Hopefully sometime during this thread we can start to let go of old superstitions ,and silly theories about grip etc. etc ,and try to concern ourselves with the important stuff,,,,,,,, like getting a grip on the music ? :roll:

    And grip isn't important?

    I've quite broad hands and always found the 3+1 grip cramped (the one I was taught as 'correct'), especially on narrower wrap instruments like the Severinsen.

    I find the 2+2 more comfortable especially if there's a lot of slide tweaking to do. And amongst the notables, it's not necessarily limited to the high register guys.
