Thread Name: Help: when you hold a flute...
Subject: when you hold a flute...
I'm a self-taught flutist and plan to stay that way. I own an Irish flute in D which is pretty big for my small hands. I also own a flute in G which is smaller in size Whichever I play, I find that the outer part of my left wrist starts to hurt after a little while.

So-- what is the recommended way for me to place my left hand on the flute? Can I just grab it however I like, or is there a trick to it?
