Thumb technique

This page discusses thumb technique along with a video lesson.

The finger that is often left to it’s own devices is the right-hand thumb. The thumb is just like any other finger, and should be practiced with as much attention as the others. Often I have seen new players pluck a string with their thumb and then bring the thumb in towards their palm, restricting the movements of the other fingers. Avoid this bad habit at all costs. It is the worst thumb habit you can develop. Just watch the video, watch your thumb, and practice correct form with the “excercises” section of the blog.
