One thing I have noticed over the last week is that I am now keeping my wrist straight and not cocking it. This is now happening even if my hand drifts away from over the neck. I am sounding the strings much more cleanly now with the straight wrist, and I must have been making slight adjustments in attack angle of the nail without even realising it. I think this in turn means I don't subconsciously start to cock the wrist searching for better tone. Today whilst learning West Fork Girls I made an extra special effort to really dig in and strike the strings. It met with success, but had I attempted that when I first changed wrist position I would have failed miserably I think.
So, it proves that bad habits can be overcome by relearning. Even something ultra basic. However it has taken a very long time, so obviously best to try and avoid bad habits in the first place.
Edit- I've just checked my past blogs. It is a grand total of 36 days since I first started deliberately attempting to sort out my wrist position.
