Good one, cdennyb!
Here's one I have studied a bit..
Milstein's thumb moves around the radius of the back of the neck a fair bit as he plays. Which is only really possible at that sort of speed if the thumb is exerting little or no pressure against the neck, and just steadying it rather than gripping it. I think that there is more than one way that the instrument can be played well. However I would agree that especially at first, keeping the thumb in a consistent place is probably best.
Another observation.. Kogan occasionally actually *looks* at the conductor!! How did they get him to do that? Did they use whips or something? LOL

These guys and others, ladies too, have achieved a mythic playing ability that I strive to attain. I refer to it as being "badass!" parden the french technical term. (I had french in highschool). awesome to watch.
