Love this arrangement! I think the world needs a Chris Eldridge solo record...

Chris and Julian Lage have 2 tremendous records that I never put away. I'm hoping for a 3rd. Fngers crossed.

Hi Rémy, 

It seems to me that actually resting the hand on the bridge would limit vertical movement of the wrist/hand and impede your ability to pick as quickly on different strings. I have a feeling that players like Molly are not actually resting their hand there even if it looks close, judging by the vertical movement of the wrist.

Anyways, at the end of the day the key is removing tension form the entire arm. I find lately that relaxing my upper arm onto the top of the guitar helps me a lot in this regard. It seems that Chris may do this as well, while I've noticed plenty of others players do not, so clearly it comes down to personal preference/your anatomy/your guitar. When I'm most relaxed I find that my up/down movements are smaller and picking is simply more accurate.
