HOLDING THE INSTRUMENT.
The thumb is placed at the back of the neck, supporting
the neck, and at a position level with the first fret.
Avoid allowing the neck to sink into the hollow between thumb and
first finger, as it will hamper the freedom of movement later for change of
position and the facility for quick fingering.
Now with the left hand in position and the instrument
(tuned as previously directed) held firmly across the body by
right fore-arm, commence to practice "Strumming."
