Just watched the DVD, great stuff. Really basic, yet eye-opening at the same time. I was impressed. Wow, my technique looks really terrible up to Todd's. Now I know why my playing on the G string is awkward and sounds different from the other strings! I play with what I thought was the floating thumb. I would move my anchor point down to the A string when playing on the G (sometimes, it depends on how fast things are happening). Turn out that is not the floating thumb?! It really means no anchoring, and using it for muting. I tried to use this last night, and WOW, is that hard to do. Breaking this habbit is going to take me some serious time. It is a HUGE step back for me, I think. My question, is it worth the investment? Can I hear from some of you that switched? I assume I'll end up with cleaner technique, but not sure how it will affect speed. I'm a pretty slow player to begin with hehe. If I do attempt to make the switch, I'm going to have to focus on this eclusively for awhile, it was taking some mad concentration to make it feel "right." Though, I'll admit my current technique doesn't always feel right, either. It'll be like trying to talk without an accent (well, if I had one).
