05 Jan 286 • Inferiority complex
There is one crucial technical misconception: the supposed inferiority of the 4th finger. The truth is that only the lifting capabilities of the ring finger are limited due to the connection of the three outer finger extension tendons (extensor digitorum communis).
The muscles responsible for lowering the fingers (lumbricalis) are not connected in any way and therefore unrestricted. If the finger lies relaxed on the keys and is activated without continuous tension - i.e. relaxed immediately after contact - the up lift of the key provides half the effort to lift the finger.
