Thank you for the great videos...good humour too. You mention things in your explanations and have covered questions which others don’t cover.
Zlata, wondering what is the most efficient way to play, for example B flat, that is the first semitones on the strings after the nut? Is it best to move the first finger back or change position of the left hand or do both, depending on what notes come before and after? It seems to be very awkward to stretch the first finger back - maybe I just need to get used to it?
NB: I'm an adult beginner playing 1 year, and haven't taken any lessons, but progressing.
