A few quick questions?

#1 Post by Just Released » Tue Apr 27, 2010 9:36 pm

I have encountered a few issues while practicing lately and made a video asking about it on youtube. My basic questions include: how do you relax while doing a closed handed picking grip like Paul? I always get cramps in my pinkey finger while I play, I try to relax but it hasn't improved. I'm also having issues with the volume knob on Strats. I love my strats and do not want to move the knob, so how does one adapt their technique to slove this issue? Finally, I have been doing picking workouts and working on my right hand alternate picking for about 4 hours each day, but I do not see any improvement....What am I not doing right and how can I improve? Here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EJ9-fYNH2g" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Any and all help or comments are appreciated. Thanks so much guys!

watch kirk hammetts' right hand when he plays- i think he has a great right hand technique really fast/versatile and able to palmmute at any moment
