This episode called “The Pistol Grip” struck a chord with many and ignited a few discussions, too. It explains my reasoning behind the use of one-finger-per-fret. It also acknowledges that the pistol grip – a collapsed, sometimes a bit lazy hand that spans only over three frets and sometimes grabs the neck with the thumb sticking out – has its uses. So, where do you stand? Are you mainly a pistol-gripper or a one-finger-per-fretter? Here is the post on notreble.
