Hey guys. Worried about "anchoring".

Let's say I'm strumming chords, and then there is a part in the riff that is picking, i will automatically place my wrist/the beginning of my palm just above the bridge. Is this the kind of anchoring that I hear being talked about as bad form? I can play the same stuff without doing so, but it feels much clumsier.

Another thing; should I be slowing down EVERYTHING i learn? If I can play something off the bat should I just play it, or should I slow down to ensure proper technique?

Cheers fellas.

**** technique. if you can make it sound good, it's fine.
lots of guitarists do things that aren't technically correct, but it gives them some style
style good

I thought anchoring was when you put your picking hand's fingers on the body below the strings like Michael Angelo Batio. I don't think you can pick accurately without putting your hand on the bridge.
