I'm not too good in this area. I like to anchor my pinky and ring finger on the body of the guitar and near any of the pickups (preferably near the middle pickup) and start out strumming slow until I can reach a comfortable speed to pick (my record is picking 16ths at a speed of 175 for a few seconds). I also like to slide my finger if I move to a fret that's a few frets away. Also, if the string is the high E string, I don't go crazy with the picking. If it's the low E string, I put more effort and strum more crazy to get better sound.

Bad, bad idea.

Anchoring won't stop you from playing well, there's no doubt about that. However, you can do much, MUCH better if you teach yourself to not anchor.

TS, I'd advise letting your friend know that one main thing NOT to do is anchor.

TheLonging...

I used to think the same thing. Anchoring does seem to give you better control and movement, but really all you're doing is limiting your wrist's motion. This won't stop you from being a good player, hell, MAB does it. But it won't help your playing. It can be a hard habit to break, and it was for me, but after about 21 days or so of not anchoring, your mind will stop thinking about you needing to do it, and you've broken your habit.

I'm addicted to anchoring and don't see a problem with it.

The way I do it is weird. I'm so used to bowing tremolo on my violin so I do it just like I would except without a bow and slightly palm muted most of the time. Idk maybe look up violin tremolo vids and that might show you how i do it.
