partial holing technique

I'm a little curious if there is a traditionally *best* way to partially cover holes.  Lets say that I am moving from a fully covered hole and the next note that I want to play is a half hole of that exact same hole.  Do I move the finger covering that hole up, down, to the side?  Is there any general consensus as to the best way to train my fingers for this?  thanks so much!

Re: partial holing technique

Thank you for that great short, Jon. This is exactly what this forum needs more of. Following along is great practice, even if I'm already familiar with the material. I am eagerly awaiting your next installment.

Remember, don't be afraid to speak!
