This is a technique I've never used as in my youth as I was a very dedicated bass player whose hero was Percy Jones..so it was all about thumb on the back of the neck etc. As I moved towards guitar this technique stayed with me. However I do sometimes regret never having learnt using the thumb over the neck technique.. and thus it has always interested me..especially when I see sublime players like Chris Buck using it in the recent video that @ThorpyFX put up for his superb Gunshot overdrive :
I've tried to use it but my 59 year old thumb refuses to comply... (bastard thing)
I wondered how many of you folks use the thumb technique?
I would imagine it's more for blues/classic rock style players i.e. old school.
It would be interesting to see if any younger players (still?) use this style.
