Note: Instructor Todd Ehle forgot to mention the importance of a very light touch with the 4th finger. It is easy to fail with this technique, all because the pinky may be pressing into the string too firmly. It should not bend the string at all. Also, the finger's contact with the string should be reduced to the smallest point possible.
