1 Sparky84 2 months ago Hi guys,Kind of struggling with a technique thing with my year-old 5422. I like the guitar, it's definitely a different look, sound and feel to my Strat, Tele and LP, but I can't seem to get my right hand to rest in the right place when picking notes or soloing (if you can call it that). I've noticed this when I played around with Jags as well - the strings leading up to the back of the bridge just aren't a very comfortable place to rest my palm. I find that I'm picking the strings too close to the saddles, getting that trebly "sitar-like" sound, and if I try to move my right hand forward so the pick is closer to between the pickups, my palm ends up sitting almost on top of the saddles and muting the strings.The weird thing is that I have very large hands, size XL in any gloves, so I would have thought this would be less of a problem for me than for guys with smaller hands. On my Strat or Tele, I just rest my palm on the bridge piece behind the saddles, and it's easy to mute or not if I want. But on the Gretsch it's only the feel of strings rather than a solid metal bridge. Maybe my hand sort of slides down toward the Bigsby too much because the strings are angled down, I don't know. But I don't tend to have this problem with my other guitars.Anybody else have this problem or have any tips to deal with it (other than more practice, which I am not diligent about)? To get the tone I like, I often find myself "floating" my right hand over the strings between the pickups. But while that's fine for strumming, it really makes it harder to arpeggio or pluck certain strings without lots of mistakes. At least I have more trouble trying to do, for example, the Peter Buck early R.E.M. stuff unless my right hand is securely anchored.Any tips appreciated!
