Most ergonomic grip?
Hello. I'm a newbie with a grip question.
I'm planning to purchase my first set of vibes in a few days and begin learning to play.
I've got pretty small hands and, after decades working at a computer keyboard, I have developed a tendency towards tendonitis in the fingers.
Plus, I have some weakness and lack of flexibility in my right thumb and right ring finger.
I'd like to try learning with 4 mallets first. That seems to offer greater musical possibilities. If that doesn't work out, I figure I can always fall back to using 2 mallets.
Any recommendations on the most ergonomic of the popular 4 mallet grips?
Any mallets--or mallet modifications--that make things easier on the hands?
Thanks in advance.
