I’m always amazed at you guys that can play with a floating (not anchoring a pinky) right hand.

I used to anchor my finger, but it started hurting my ligaments. I then anchored with the ring-finger, but couldn’t reach the bass strings. So I changed to free-floating. I think anchoring is only necessary when you’re playing fast (faster than I can play) or maybe when playing on the high-E string.
