One question: There's nothing stopping me using the Rest Stroke Technique on electric guitar, is there? After all Django sounded great when he was plugged in.
i've seen him play a couple of times and i'm pretty sure he doesn't use rest strokes...you can tell by the way he holds the pick and because his wrist is planted on the guitar.
i play a lot of electric guitar these days, and i don't have high action, i don't really see why you'd need high action (?)... i don't pick hard at all either, i also play on light gauge strings (from a jazz guitarist's perspective) 11s... to date i've only broken two e strings for the 3 yrs that i've owned this guitar...
by rest-stroke, i meant that he can't possibly be letting gravity pull his hand down because his wrist is stuck to the guitar. i always thought that a loose wrist was a key part of the rest-stroke thing.
