  1. my guitarist is always telling me to relax my picking hand, when im both using a pick and just my fingers, does anyone have any suggestions on how i can practice relaxing my hands while playing?
  2. well.. practice.. :)

    playing with a pick is the same as playing with fingers.. the strings need to vibrate only a little.. no need to use the pick to smack them 'round.. soft touch.. good sound...
