What position is your picking hand in and why?
Wow that was very helpful! It's time to see really, how much tension am I using while playing!This lesson I just saw yesterday will definitely help me with my picking:
I can hardly wait to give your LP a go! I will be able to when you come and play!I have to watch tension, too. My left hand gets strained and I have some arthritis in my left wrist, so I really need to make sure I am applying the least amount of pressure possible.
For my picking hand, I find it is usually half-open and relaxed. I sometimes plant my pinky under the Les Paul pickup ring or Tele bridge edge.
I'm not sure. I wish I wouldn't have thought about it.
I can't seem to put the heel of my palm on the strings without opening the fingers at least a bit.
