Left & Right Hand Position

To specify the fingers in the right hand we use letters. These letters come from the Spanish.

p=pulgar=thumb
i=indice=index
m=medio=middle a=anular=ringfinger e=menique=pinkie
e is mostly used in Flamenco Music. 

For the left hand numbers are used:

1= Index Finger

2= Middle Finger

3= Ring Finger

4= Pinkie
