how about one for combination. I use four when i stop at a light and two when shifting.

there's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes
it's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
and like fools we trust the delivery
but it's all just drunk sincerity

The tall finger on my left hand has a weak knuckle from a high-school basketball injury, so 2-finger clutch operation is out for me - I have to use all four, as my pinky is not very independent of my ring finger...

but I use 2 fingers on my brake.
