Hey, I've been playing guitar for many years now and was wondering at what stage anchoring is considered anchoring. I very gently rest my pinky and ring finger tips on the guitars body below the strings, but never on the bridge or the strings.

I'd like very much to correct this if it's going to have a negative impact on my playing, so please let me know your thoughts on what you consider anchoring,

Thanks in advance

as long as it's not hindering the movement of your hand/wrist, and you're not using it to rely on as to know where the strings are, then go at it.

Just try and play real basic stuff (For example Crazy Train Riff) and focus on keeping your finger on the fretboard. Thats how i did it and it only took a few hours to get down.

If your fingers are relaxed and are free to move, that's fine.

If your fingers are pressing lightly into the guitar, that's mildly detrimental.

If you're pressing hard into the guitar, that's bad.
