I just read a great post on a new blog I found today. The blog is called “A Guitar Teacher’s Lesson Notebook” and the post was titled “A Memo From the Department of Thumb Placement Correction”
Many guitar players have a hard time figuring out where to put their thumb when they play. This post covers a few grip options and lets you know when to use each one for different playing situations. I actually use both of the main grips that the author refers to in his post. As he points out, they each have their practical applications.
While you’re there check out some of the other posts. They are very informative, interesting and well-written.
