    Thanks Jim! That didn’t take long.

    Man Means is just on fire. I have him in a different league (points, $$$). Didn’t realize they pushed his start today until it was too late. Dang.

    I hear ya. They’ve got a nice crop blooming there. And they need an ace. I mean they knew he had it in him and they’ve nursed him this far. Would be a shame to see him in different colors. I don’t think they’ve raised one since Mussina and Ben McDonald have they?

    I’m not sure, but nice playing there. I’ve been working on and slowly trying to convert to the thumb over. I noticed that you’re able to cover both the Low E and A strings. I am trying to do just that. Maybe not quite fretting the A string but at least being able to wrap over enough to mute it with the thumb when my first finger is playing on the G string while muting the D string with the same finger tip. Making progress but still haven’t found the comfort spot for the wrist to move yet. I’ve taken a few notes here based on some observations. :thumb:

    Nice relaxed grip on the pick and relaxed motion with the right hand to. I’m trying the 2 finger and thumb approach but I have no finesse yet, lol. I have to grip the pick harder than I want to keep it from swiveling around and I end up just chopping the strings to death.

    Nice form! :thumb:

    Thanks @chrimturn! Yes it's handy to wrap that thumb around to mute the E and A when playing chordal stuff on the top 4. I don't think I would pick this guitar part either. Heard the song on the radio and thought hey that's a cool little rhythmic part. A little hint... the artist is famous for playing a different instrument.

    IMO @stratocarlster is among the best rhythm players that I've seen here. Cool and relaxed strumming style and always on time...always.

    Well, with the hint, my mind immediately/automatically wants to think Phil Collins and hearing something like Sussudio but after listening I don’t think that is it.
