Hi Michael! Great book! Thanks a lot!
I have a few questions though:
1) When playing an "imaginary" rest stroke (following through all the way) on the high E string I keep hitting the top of my guitar with the pick. Should I change my picking angle just for that string so I´m picking away from the top instead of into it? or whats the trick?
2)Is it ok if I pick directly on top of the soundhole? Because playing closer to the bridge my wrist bends down to much and it´s a little uncomfortable.
3)Is it ok to cross my right leg on top of my left to raise the guitar ?
4)Can you give me some basic guidelines as to how to go about adjusting left hand fingerings so they work better with GP?
5)I read somewhere in this forum that Raphael Fays learned to play with his fingers closed by holding a wine cork inside his hand , Do you recomend this?
6)Any idea when your "Gypsy Rhythm" and "Gypsy Patterns" books will be released?
And finally 7)I´m playing live with a straight ahead jazz band twice every week so I can´t take a six month hiatus from performing as you said in your book, so I was wondering if using a non-plectrum technique (with the thumb a la Wes) would help so I don´t start mixing my old technique with the GP?
Sorry for the bombardment but I´m new to this and want to start right.
Thans for your help and thanks again for producing such fine material.
