I've been told that I have an extremely "light" lead, and that sometimes it is very hard to feel the connection with me. In the past, I heard so many followers say . . ."wow, so and so has such an extremely light lead . . . it was wonderful." So, I started searching for exercises to remedy this. The one that I did was to practice my lead connection with a nickel between my index finger and second finger . . . trying not to let the nickel fall out! Although it may be light, I find that followers really respond well to this, as it lets them concentrate more on my center, which is where my lead comes from in the first place. Thoughts???
