Duke Guitar: can an old dog learn tricks? (63* d) RE: Guitar: can an old dog learn tricks? 17 Mar 07

I was interested in the advice given by Murray MacLeod to "under no circumstances rest your pinkie on the soundboard while picking". I've never been able to do that and I've tried many times. My unique method is (I play mostly with thumb and one finger) to cup my fingers around the top E string and remove them when I want to play the string. Strange? Of course it is, but it works for me.
