My preliminary observations:
My limited supply of literature does not depict men's hands (let alone men's large hands) for examples. I intend no gender bias or prejudice against any size hand. I simply don't see depictions of larger size people even when describing differences between say small and large hand frames.
I believe Mr. Fischer distinguishes between centering hand frame around first finger for large hands and second finger for small hands.
I have searched this site and found limited content on frame and intonation aspects for large hands. Often the focus drifts to shoulder rest debates.
As a POLH (person of large hands) I am trying to sort out any modifications that need to be made to relate the available information to suit my size. My hands are about 8 ins long from wrist crease to finger tip and 3 3/4" wide a palm. Not giant but hard to find gloves that fit.
Does anyone have advice for hand frame and playing in tune for those with large hands?
