    hey guys, just wondering if my technique is risky...sort of difficult to describe but i'll try. So my grip is the "claw", thumb on back of neck perpendicular to the strings. My hands are kinda small so when I go down to G, or sometimes D, with my Pinky...my wrist "dips", or slightly lowers at an angle(for lack of a better word). My thumb keeps its position tho. Is this bad, if so whats a good way to fix?? It feels totally natural, and there is no discomfort. Thanx-esther
