I am coming at GP from bluegrass Alt P. where my right arm comes around from the end of the guitar (my elbow pretty close to the end pin of the guitar) and my wrist resting on the bridge.
I have the GP book, and understand what to do, but the problem I am having is that when I execute a downstroke, which hopefully will result in a rest stroke with my pick resting on the next string, instead my pick is probably 60 to 80% of the time going past the next string, and ends up resting on the string two strings away!
So if i play the G string, I end up resting it seems on the E, not the B. The A string attack ends up on the G etc...
It seems like if I concentrate to prevent this, I end up using tension in my stroke to stop the pick on the next string, and tension I think is definately what we are trying to prevent.
I assume this extra string jumping is a no-no, and wondering if anyone else ran into this and has an idea on where I may be going wrong.
I think I do have the correct positioning with my right hand/wrist/arm, and the big volume and tone is definately there.
