This is such a good view of what it takes to flit about the strings I thought I'd share it She's so good. I'm learning to let my hand fly a little more freely. 7,348 hrs to go.

That Molly Tuttle is the 8th wounder of the world.
And that's my favorite rendition of Freight Liner Blues

She's good, but it's hard to beat this IMO. :)

Yep, got to see Molly when she played a small venue in Asheville few months ago....Great talent and dont think she really knows how good she is yet. Amazing that bout that video is that she is actually pickin and somehow singing at the same time. [thumbup]

Norman Blake is one of the greats, and Molly Tuttle is the next generation. The economy of movement in her picking hand is absolutely stunning.

Weird technique, but it surely works for her.

At first I thought she was using her thumbnail, but she may be gripping her pick this way. It's impressive she can dig in so hard at that speed, as Nick said, economically.

I've watched a bunch of her videos, and I'm pretty sure that's the way she holds it, with very little pick exposed. When I do that, the side of my thumb hits the strings a lot.

Here she is at 14, with her two little brothers.

I clearly wasted my childhood!

Very unortho, but great for her and that's what it's all about. Thanks, always enjoy her in action.
