I've been edging my setup higher and higher off the fret board and have found myself twisting knobs less, getting more tones with my right/playing hand and punching through the mix better. Its not any harder to fret, and it makes me more of a pocket player. Consequently, I can still play fast enough for the work I'm doing.. What gives? Have I matured? Or is it just not possible to get a good punchy tone with low action? Before you say I was buzzing out and choking notes off; nothing could be farther from the truth. I had no fret buzz with >3/32".. but < 3/32" is where its at for me.
