Flatpicker for a long time, developing fingerstyle skills. I'm doing a 3-finger strict Ring-Middle-Index technique (not great at it yet, but getting there) I'm trying to learn to play with a light touch so I started curling my plucking hand fingers. Not all the way underneath like I was going to pop the string, but just enough so the tip of the finger is at right angles with the string. Light touch 3 finger strict RMI Fingers curled where fingertip is perpendicular to string It's been working OK but I read some people saying that R.H. finger curl is a good way to get carpal tunnel syndrome. Can anybody verify or debunk that? Most valuable would be opinions from people with an orthopedic background, or people that have used this technique who can say whether or not it caused them problems in the long term.
