Resting ones thumb

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by Verbannter, Dec 17, 2005.

  1. I've seen many artists laying their thumbs on the strings above where they're playing, however I find myself always positioning my thumb on the pickup or floating asides when I am playing slap. Is there anything wrong with this?

    Edit: I play a 6 string :)
  2. Nope, you're fine. Putting your thumb on the strings is a great way to mute, but floating and anchoring on the pickup are fine too.
