Sitting here at work and getting a little practice time in.(once I was caught up). I have been working on the Foggy Mountain Breakdown version that is under the playing advice section, by Rob Bourassa. I am on #8 and trying to build up some speed. I am developing a problem with my thumb pick catching on the string, not the flat pick face but underneath where it comes over the thumb and ends on the back of the thumb. I guess I'm dipping down too far for some reason.........

Chris--I had a simular problem once . I corrected it by having my two fingers anchored mor solidly and sat more on the egde of my chair if pickin' sittin down. This brought my arms down to my side --which helped the problem but also cured my Pinky streching iin Cumberland Gap part B. I noew am able to pick cleaner. Good luck!

Thanks Hank, I am picking sitting down, I wonder if I'm anchoring my fingers to low sometimes, due to fatigue or bad posture.
