GUEST,Vixen @ work Bluegrass bass runs (26) RE: Bluegrass bass runs 01 Feb 02


Wow...when the student is ready the teacher(s) appear(s). I've just begun to wrassle with the demon of bluegrass runs. Thanks for all the tips!

Any suggestions for a lefty who plays righty and therefore can't seem to hit the same string twice in succession with the pick??? The solution for my left hand is practice practice practice. What's the solution for the right hand? It's stiff, clumsy, slow, and frustrating. Sweet Reynaud tells me to relax, but my right hand doesn't seem to KNOW how to relax. Took me 4 YEARS to learn how to hold a pick so it wouldn't slip into the sound hole at every opportunity. I've been finger-picking righty for 20 years, so I think it's too late to change hands, though never too late to learn new things!
