Hi! I've been doing practises to improve my sweep picking technique!

I want to ask anyone here who is good with sweep picking about my left hand positioning. I've realise that a lot of pro-guitarist sweep picking technique (for left hand mainly) have their thumb behind the fretboard while mine is always over the fretboard. When I tried to sweep pick slowly with my thumb not over the fretboard, I find it way harder than when my thumb is over the fretboard.

Soo should I stick with my own suitable style or should i just practise with my thumb over the fretboard?

Thanks for the help!

I guess your style would be ok for 3 string sweeps, but for more, you´re gonna reach the lower strings in a very uncomfortable position. I would suggest start practising with thumb behind the fretboard.

Maybe you missed this with regard to another of your adverts....

I would say this depends on your hand size, with really big hands it may be easier to keep the thumb over the fretboard.

If it works for you (and it doesnt feel bad in any way) its the right technique for you.
