Hi Glenn, You just need to make a conscious effort to plant one or both of your fingers on the head and practice, practice, practice. If you can hit the strings that you want It's not too critical. Some guys don't anchor at all.

I could only plant my pinky when I first started and after awhile I noticed both my fingers were planted and I didn't even realize it. Like Augie said, just pratice and try to at least keep one planted. Welcome to the BHO

If you're just starting out, don't sweat it. It will come. My cousin had been playing for 20 years when he finally decide to plant both fingers, he actually put a strip of two sided tape on his head where his fingers planted and that helped him a little bit.

I seen also where someone on BHO used a rubber thimble on his ring finger to help keep it planted.
