Engrave this Quote The thumb does not have very a important role when shifting from one position to another. There is too much said, as it seems to me, about importance of the thumb...

Engrave this Quote If the Almighty himself played the violin, the credits would still read 'Rubinstein, God, and Piatigorsky', in that order.
