I am trying to improve my left hand technigue as well as reduce fretting noise. My question(s) has probably been asked before but here it comes again. I have been told and have read that the left hand should be in a cupped postion and a finger to its own fret. Should the fingers rest on the strings as a form of muting or just float above the strings? Also is the finger per fret correct or is it exceptable to hold your fingers close together (in a relaxed position (four fingers covering three frets)) and slide your hand to get to each frets? The G & D string seem to be my weakest link right now while trying to keep my hand cupped. Again, I am sorry if this has been discussed before. If you can direct me to the old threads, that would be appreciated.
