Yep, 999, that is what I have come to be doing. It isn't a problem when I am sitting and doing a concert style performance, but when I am in a pub, and the band is smokin hot, I sometimes get carried away and start flailing. Rick used to climb in my stuff about that......makes me chuckle just thinking about it. The only problem I have with the thumb technique is that my left thumb joint was damaged by a 28 oz. framing hammer years ago when I was still earning a living with my carpenters tools. It makes it hard to bend it, but I manage.
