I am all for whatever grip works- dont get me wrong and I am nervous about even commenting here amongst the big dogs but I did notice it. Might just be that you only play the ride that way that seems odd to me.

Keep it up anyway. Sounds great and so relaxed.
I'm using french grip with some moeller. Haven't had any problems with it. I'm working on loosening my grip though, to get a better sound.
