Problem with stiff hand

Postby BadBoyJones » Fri Nov 10, 2006 6:46 pm

I have been playing classical music for about 8 years now (private lessons) but ofcourse since I found the Blues I started playing Blues without any teacher helping me. What's my problem is that I have stiff hands and I keep my fingers flat. Now I know many Jazz players have this maner but its obviously something bad for the sound and for the playing itself. My question is: Do you know any practices or ways to make your hand loose? (I thinking mostly about the right hand)

Just try to relax your fingers and don't force your hand too much.
