ok... so some people may recognize me since i posted a question on artificial harmonics like two days ago

i'm having a basic concern here... when i 'dig in' to the string and pluck it, it feels like my thumb isn't even touching the string after the pick.
one thing for sure, i AM holding the pick tight enough by the tip
(i tried holding it even tighter, but no difference....)
but it feels like the pick is pushing the string so that the thumb can't really touch the string

(strangely, i get squels when i pluck the string with both my thumb and the pick at the same time, not thumb followed by pick
but i'm not even sure if that's right because i've seen MANY instructions and videos about artificial harmonics and not single one of them mentioned plucking with thumb and pick at the same time.)

so i'm basically lost... i'm having a hard time just doing what the instructions told me to do
is it suppose to feel like my thumb isn't touching the string??????

You have to use your thumb like 1 microsecond after you pluck it with your pick.

EDIT: That's why it seems like it's going at the same time when you do get them. That's what I think anyway. Works for me wink.gif
