Thanks again for the responses, I decided to involve a mirror and take some pictures that clearly show my wrist. 1) Shows the best fingers but the most crane.2) Shows how I would normally play (less crane, but worse finger angles).3) Is my attempt at the hand angle Pebber Brown is using in "How to Practice Scales" (I tried to post the link but I got "Your posts contains to many links.
