  4. Yeah, I’ve been struggling with neck dive. Tried different straps and nothing seems to help.

  5. That’s what I thought. I worry about my hands being nowhere near the strings but I feel like I overthink this sometimes.

    In certain circumstances, I could see many copping your technique.

    Right wrist is fairly straight, and looks relaxed. Don't see much tension in fretting hand. Eyes not locked on fretboard. I think you are on your way to mastery. Putting the FUN into fundamentals!

    I was reviewing the original post. Looks like there's no chance the bottom is gonna drop out....
  13. Yes it is and thanks.

    Interesting palm muting technique... I suppose that's one way to get more bottom end.
