Thank you Swampfox and sw1tch73ch for more information on this topic. Just like Swampfox said, Bb is the hard part. Instead of 3-> 2-> 1-> 1, it's much easier with 3-> 2-> 1 -> 2 for sure. But this program is well built, I am assuming there are some reasons that I don't know now but to help us as we progress. After I am done with all the courses (by then, my fingers should move a little better than now) I will come back to this lesson and try it again and see how it works.

One thought, even if the thumb on Bb to A isn't the most comfortable, it might be teaching a needed skill. But I'm purely guessing. I don't really know why it was chosen that way.
