Re: Picking hand anchor and trem question
What bridge are you using? If you try getting hold of some bushings so that bar doesn't hang loose then that might help. When i use my bar i suspend my hand (anchor?) by resting my third finger on the body of the guitar about 2/3rds of the way towards to the bridge pickup.I usually use my middle finger+palm to manipulate the bar and keep my first finger+thumb free to pick etc. Although that's only if you're doing dips/slurred satriani things. If you want a lot of pull up on the bar i try to use my forearm for more anchorage on the body by holding it tighter on the guitar.
