Removing the Tape

Posted on April 6, 2019

So I wanted to show you something. Check it out!

How about that! I removed the washi tape marker for my first finger position earlier this week!

Actually, this was more because the tape had begun to bunch up at the G string now that I’ve started playing the lower notes. I ignored it for a while, then finally got annoyed with it and decided to take it off.

I hear about how you’re supposed to be focusing on training the ear rather than the eye to know where fingers should be on the finger board. While I don’t feel comfortable enough removing the third finger tape yet, I’m adjusting to removing the first finger, and it’s gone well so far!

Congratulations! I'm not quite there, yet.

You'll get there! I still need at least one tape, so not quite done with it yet! :)
