    This has got me thinking

    I went for my lesson straight from work last week. I usually keep my finger strengthener in my pocket, its become a bit of an habbit now, always pressing away whenever i get chance.

    Anyhow, i showed it to my teacher and his fingers seemed to be not quite as strong as mine. So would i be right in thinking its more a case of strengthening and stretching the tendons and not actual muscle strength in the fingers that's required?

    Just a thought

    IMHO it seems to me it's a matter of strength and dexterity. Those would be the key factors involved. As well as trained muscle memory for runs and arpeggios.
