Bryan Sutton- Picking Hand Technique

This is a helpful video showing proper pick hold, etc. which has been discussed a few times here:


Thats almost exactly my right hand technique, although I’ve been trying to not let my fingers touch the pickguard anymore (but since Bryan does it may not be necessary for me to change). There’s not too many ‘wrong’ picking techniques, it just depends in what you can get to work for you. Took me a while to stop trying to mount my hand on anything, though I still catch myself doing it anyways😁. Ive heard a free floating right hand will be the fastest if you can retain accuracy, so thats what I go for.
