This might seem a stupid question but here goes . Soo im sat here playing my guitar and came up with a little 'problem' with my picking technique. Basically whilst i play i rest my palm on the strings im not playing to mute them which as far as im aware is the right thing to do but isn't that essentially 'anchoring' which is supposedly the wrong thing to do. I'm pretty comfortable with my picking but i'd rather not pick up bad habits and maybe even cause problems with my hand/wrist.

So am i doing something wrong or should i carry on as i am?

All replies will be well appreciated

Thanks

There's a difference between contact for muting purposes and contact for anchoring purposes. When anchoring, you have a fixed point of contact that is maintained through some form of tension. When muting, your hand is free to move and is only gently touching the strings in order to keep them silenced.
Speed is a by-product of shut the fuck up.

That seems to have pretty much answered it, probably should've realised that in the first place -.-

Thanks though!!

Do you keep your hand fixed on that same exact point? Do you move around your picking hand?
