I'm a pretty aggressive player, and often wish I had a much lighter touch, as I know how much more can be done with that. I've made some progress over the years but today I discovered an instant, 2 step plan, that works better than anything I could ever imagine. 1. Take the pointer of your right hand (or whichever hand you pick with), and place the tip of it in doorway. 2. Slam the door. Absolutely amazing. Have a rehearsal this wednesday. Have an important gig this friday. New technique is going to be awesome. Slight chance I may have to go to emergency tomorrow to get a hole drilled in my nail. I heard if it swells too much, it's counterproductive. We'll see I guess.
