power grip

Postby billkilpatrick » Sun Nov 30, 2008 4:04 pm

the so-called "power grip" - touted by bluegrass players as the only way to go - has always been a problem for me but just recently i had something of a windfall from a cut on my right thumb. a plaster on that part of the thumb where i was told the pick was supposed to rest meant that i had to shuffle it further down towards the palm ... and ... hey-presto! thumb sticks out a bit and my attempts at cross-picking are v-e-r-y slow ... but it works!

... yay!
