Hello, New member here and new to Fender guitars. I’ve been playing since the the mid-late 70’s but, aside from my first guitar (Sears Strat copy) given to me by a friend, always a Gibson player. Love the Strat “quack” and have tried playing a Strat before, but my right hand positioning (I’ve been described as a “bridge Palmer”) doesn’t get along with how Fenders are strung closer to the body than Gibbys and the proximity of my hand to the volume knob constantly causes the volume to change. In a nutshell, I’ve acquired / developed a right hand technique seemingly not conducive to Fender-style guitars. However, it works very well with Gibson guitars. Acquired an SSS American Ultra Strat in Texas Tea a couple of weeks ago and decided I was going (re)learn how to play using a new-to-me right hand technique / positioning. Thus far, at times, it feels as though I had never played a guitar before. My left and right hands seem pretty out of sync. It is, however, interesting and fun and decided to join this forum in the hope of learning new things Fender.
