[font=trebuchet ms]Hmm... Do you rest your forearm on the guitar body, or do you 'float' above the strings?

I anchor my arm on the body and/or rest the edge of my hand just past the bridge - not palm muting, I'm resting on the strings between the bridge saddles and the tail piece. Obviously, I don't have a trem type bridge.

Well, actually one of my axes has a Floyd Rose, and I spend a lot of time cursing that thing![/font]
