Re: Blocking

Bryan: The full benefits of conventional blocking require an open hand so all areas of the hand are close to the strings. Curling the pinkie and third finger under lifts the palm slightly higher, reduces the blocking area of the palm, and prohibits the use of the third finger for blocking. I use the palm for thumb notes and keep the third fingerclose to the second to block second finger notes with it. The addition of the first finger for notes requires a slightly different technique, but still requires an open hand.
