Rest Stroke

Postby Weav » Fri Mar 24, 2006 6:02 am

Ok, just to make sure, I should use alternate strokes; unless I'm switching strings I downstroke, right?
Also, should my wrist be resting on strings, body, or just free hanging?
I find it difficult free hanging.

Does anyone also know any good pictures
i could find on the rest stroke technique?

Hi Weav,

This is my first post here too and it's a shameless plug! ;)

You can check out this page on my site, maybe you'll find your answers...

Quite right it should be shameless, Yann. I've been on your website and I found it excellent. Your demo's explained a lot. Nice also to see that you've been working hard on the english translation. Is that complete now?

Just before half way through that video u get a really good close up of Fapy's right hand.. he is using the rest stroke technqiue. From what i understand of it the right hand should not be touching the strings. At first that seems impossible.. but its just a strength thing. You have to keep at it.

Chandler,

Yes the translation is over for now, the French and English sites are synchronized. Which means that from now on, every new entry will be created for both languages at the same time.

Great if you like the site! That's what makes it worth the effort.

SwingOpi,

I live in France in Thionville, next to the Lux border but I work in Luxembourg. Trier is really close in any case so it's possible to meet and jam at some point. I have to say though that it's quite hard to find some time because of the rehearsals (I'm part of two bands), the concerts, the daily job, the site, guitar training, and the private life! :) But I guess slacks can be found in my agenda... Do you work in Luxembourg too ?

Tach,

@ Yann

no I´m not working in Luxembourg, I only go there for shopping! :D
I think that we will find some time to djam in the near future.
