Subject: RE: Size DOES matter..but flexibility rules!
I just KNEW it was a Rick Fielding thread....

I have little hands and I play an old Martin 000 too. I wouldn't want anything bigger. My guitar angle has improved since I started using a strap. I don't worry about the guitar travelling down my leg. Putting my thumb behind the neck is invaluable to me, but mostly up the neck. But the fingers coming down vertically on the strings is vital. It has helped me improve very much since I've concentrated on doing that. Same for Banjo. Margo a go-go
