Help: Pulling high E-string off the fretboard on new Valentine
i recently acquired a new Valentine. i just had it set-up with d’addario balanced tension 10’s. the action was set low and slinky. so, i’m having a problem when doing pull-offs on the high E string. seems i pull the string off the fretboard and choke off the notes. i’m trying to adjust my technique so it doesn’t happen as much, but i am wondering if anyone else has this sort of issue? i guess i could up my string gauge to 11’s and maybe up the action a tiny bit. i love the way it feels now, except for this issue, but how am i going to do those “jeff’s boogie” or rick nielsen barrage of pull-offs if this keeps happening?
