Pinkies and pots

1353 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 changed my picking style after playing one way for 15 years. Changing has been the best thing that's happened to my playing. But I know what you mean about the pinky hitting the volume control. But since changing my picking technique that has been pretty much eliminated.

You can always pick a little higher on the strings and no so close to the bridge when you're sweeping back down.
