WHAT IS THE CORRECT POSITION FOR THE RIGHT HAND/ARM. CAN ANYONE TELL ME SPECIFICALLY THE CORRECT WAY. I MUST
BE DOING SOMETHING WRONG IF I START TO FEEL NUMBNESS IN MY RIGHT HAND JUST AFTER
30 MIN OF PLAYING. I ALTERNATE BETWEEN A PICK AND MY FIRST TWO FINGERS. I DONT PLAY OVERLY HARD, AND I REST MY THUMB ON THE PICK UP
WHEN I PLAY MY HIGH G STRING....SHOULD I BE RESTING MY THUMB ON ANYTHING AT ALL?
IS THERE A PROPER SCIENTIFIC WAY TO HOLD THE RIGHT HAND,
HAVING THIS NUMBNESS IN MY RIGHT HAND IS DRIVING ME CRAZY, AND I DONT WANT O KEEP
PLAYING IF ITS GOING TO CAUSE FUTURE PROBLEMS....SO CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP
AND TELL ME THE PROPER WAY....SHOULD THERE BE ANY BEND IN THE WRIST? SHOULD THE ELBOW
BE HELD UP IN THE AIR....SHOULD THE FOREARM REST ON THE BASS OR NOT? HELP !!!!
