1) my teacher instructed me to rely on gravity to let my right arm fall when plucking the strings. Specifically, i almost completely relax my right arm and let it's weight move the string parallel to the fingerboard then rest my finger on the next lowest string. i'm curious if you guys have any tips on preventing my hand from falling all the way to my waist, when playing the e string though, because it's difficult to slow down such a powerful motion. 2) when attempting to play up tempo songs, can someone specifically describe their right hand technique? are you still playing with both fingers beside each other? just the index by itself in very very rapid motion? or trading between index and middle? yes...i already read the newbie faq and i'd still appreciate more detail...thanks!
