What is considered to be the proper right hand technique. After 7 years of playing I'm still not fast enough t o play what I want to play and my instructor is blamimg it on my right hand. I used to be a bass player so I naturally let my pinky or my pinky and third finger set on the guitar. It's very awkward for me to play with my whole hand suspended.I also play mainly strats and see a lot of players rest their palm on the saddles.This also feels awkward to me. I would like to just learn the correct way now before going any further with my bad habits no matter what it takes. Any suggestions?
