And weirdly enough, i was using the 'flat foot' technique without even noticing myself. One day I just started playing like that and didn't even know what it was called. :D
Cheers Tom....you know. this whole flatfoot issue isn't some mystical thing....it's the way most of us play without ever knowing it. Haha. Flatfoot is still heel up....it's just using more of your leg as opposed to your ankles.
