I can't seem to find anything on the site to specifically address, what I am sure is this very basic question, however, as a new member here just starting the exercises in prep for the next classes I hope to be a part of, it is very important to me to not begin with an incorrect understanding.
The question pertains to the right hand (assuming right hand play). As the fingers climb the ladder of High E, B, G, in the exercise Mi, Si, Sol, Re, "are the proper mechanics of the hand to push forward slightly with the entire arm in order to allow room for the fingers to climb? OR Is the hand raised slightly as it goes by moving the arm only from the elbow? OR is it purely a motion of curling up the finger as they climb the strings in a slightly tighter curl?" This last option seems to be one that could induce more tension in the hand. I know it seems a tiny thing, but if anyone has any insight as to the actual proper mechanics of motion to be aimed for here, I would be ever grateful.
