Re: navy knobs


thumb on skirt, index on top of knob, middle on skirt. slight  squeeze pressure with middle and thumb to control rebound . Index controls down pressure. Just like the old manuals show. Has worked best for me. try several methods and see what gives you best result. Just don't become a "tapper". sounds funny on the dits....... hi hi

I much prefer the navy knob and/or skirt. Index and middle finger on knob and thumb and ring finger on skirt
