Right hand technique for rhythm

I've developed this terrible habit of posting my pinkie while I'm playing rhythm. It leads to a significant thumping on as my pinkie beats against the top when I'm playing. Orrin Starr called me on it during a workshop a few months ago, and I've been trying to sort it out since then.Just curious how folks approach their right hand position while playing rhythm. Closed fist? Posting, but with a looser touch? Nothing feels quite right as I'm trying to change it up.See More

Jumping octaves

I've been playing around with exercises 11 and 12 in the keys of C, D, A and E. Frequently, they offer a choice of either walking up and landing on a root played on the treble strings, or walking up, but finally popping back an octave to play the root on the low E string.Just taking Ex. 11 in C as an example, it walks nicely from C to F, but to follow the baseline to G you either wind up on the third string open G (kind of tinny to my ear), or jump down an octave to play the root on the sixth…See More

Little Girl!!! How in the world are you?? I certainly hope this message finds you well. I am bummed that Kamp did not work out for me this year. (Implementing a Dang new computer systems at work.) Anyway, hope you are becoming a master of that little mando. Check out Sierra Hull's new album, if you haven't yet. Great stuff. Still holding out hope I can get down this weekend to see David Grier. All the best! Jimmy

Hope so Joe. You know they posted the instructors for 2009. I'll have to wait a bit to see which week works for me. But I won't make a decision until I check with my flatpicking buddies.

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
