This book will explain and illustrate the majority of finger techniques which can be combined into various finger systems. It starts with the most basic fundamentals and takes the reader through a logical pyramiding progression of techniques leading to the development of the ability to use the fingers to assist in multiple strokes and/or to maintain a constant, almost perpetual motion with each hand.
