    Just wondering what everyone does with their thumb on their picking hand. I keep mine above whatever string im playing on - IE if im playing on G string, my thumb is on the D. Is this bad technique?
  2. That's a great technique, very common. I also rest my thumb on the pickup when playing on the b/e string.
