Overall Basic Instrument Operation Comments from Carl:
Nice work here. Love the posture, what a difference! Your steadiness is really good but there's still some room for improvement. Pay close attention to your arm, the moment you engage your arm is the most common moment for unsteadiness. Are you perhaps relaxing your arm completely? That will make the arm always unsteady, instead keep it always engaged, under tension but vary the amount of pressure to keep the pipes steady. Keep working on this steadiness each day as you move on to phase 4. Nice job!
