|I rest my thumb on the edge of the pickup instead of the strings tbh. Not sure if this vid'll show you what I mean - here. At the start you might notice my thumb's resting on the pickup or occasionally the body (like when you're playing pool or some shit, I guess)... I never really rest my thumbs on the strings. If I have to mute it'll either be part of my palm or I'll mute with my left hand, depends really.|
I'm a grumpy bastard.
