I often find myself rather puzzled when I hear other players speak of their views on left hand finger placement technique. A few people say to place your fingers firmly and attack the strings. While others say to be as light as possible and only press hard enough not to sound a harmonic. What are your opinions on this matter? I have always tried to be light and gentle, but was told to press more firmly. I look forward to reading your responses.
