So in order to avoid guessing, it is better
to avoid the dots for the closing of fingers and instead
write the beginning and ending position.... Is that right?
I myself feel much more comfortable with start -and-end
Referring to Example 0015: Yes..that is right.
The dark dot means "squeezing" or closing the
middle joint. The movement can finish in a fist, but it
can also finish in a claw. Examples 2, 3 and 4 show three
different ways the first example can be read....
are several ways to be very accurate. One of them is to
write the beginning and ending positions - then you do
not need the dot at all, because you can see what happens.
if you choose to use the dot, I would suggest placing
it on the ending position, and throw out the beginning
position. Then you will know how you finish, and assume
that you have to start with straight fingers to move into
are times when the dots are really useful...for example
when the movement is "close-close"...in other
words "double" closings. But single closings
are not the same - they really don't need the dot, if
you write the beginning and ending positions.
I would suggest using the dots for "double"
movement, and for single movement, just write the beginning
and ending positions...
