When you guys play power chords do you put your middle finger straight over the strings, or do you keep it curled over them?
I personally have it curled, but my friend plays with it straight across.
Just wondering how you guys do it.

I usually go curled under. I have no idea why. It may be because I'm retarded in some way.

Like I'm giving someone the finger.

Curled, then again I have a wierd way of playing power chords.

Godamn you now whenever I play power chords my middle finger feels awkwardly misplaced


Also, Im pretty sure this is the wrong forum for this.

Oh, sorry if it is, it just came to mind as I was playing and decided I'd ask everyone.
EDIT: directed to the wrong forum statement.

I flip off anyone who happens to see me playing.
I bet you five bucks that I play guitar.

I set it on the string right behind my ring. I can't keep my fingers in the air otherwise they do ****ed up **** and mess up my playing.

I guess I'm doing this wrong since I use the middle finger for playing power chords...



I do that too! I'm not alone, thank God!

I have it curled besides my ring finger.... not touching any strings though... just sorta suspended midway in the air....!!

If it's on the last three, i have it curled back, if it's on the 3,4,5 i have it mutting the sixth(so straight).

Tool, anyone?
Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.
