Pinkies and pots

1354 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Eggy
I like to pick and sweep whilst resting the fleshy part of my hand near the bridge. The problem is I've found the middle knuckle of my pinkie keeps bashing against the volume pot when I sweep. The Jem is the only guitar I have this problem with and I'm reluctant to drasticly change my long developed style. Does anyone else have this problem and is there a way to cure it without doing anything too major to my style or my Jem ?

I've opened my hand wider to wrap my pinky around the volume pot.
When not in use it rests next to the pot- under it. This style also forces your picking technique to be lower and faster and your "chunk" is devistating!
