My grip is in with my left hand, but you should be able to transpose.
I hold the Madcat between my ring finger and my pinkie with the volume
knob above my fingers. I have also been known to hold it between my
middle ("bird") finger and my ring finger. Depends on what size chamber
you feel like cupping the mic in.
The best way to explain it is to hold your hand in front of your mouth
with a harp gripped in it using your standard acoustic grip. Slide the
Madcat between either of the previously mentioned sets of fingers so
that the grill of the mic is facing the harp and the volume knob is
above the fingers and then close your fingers together. Now use your
free hand to form your cup. It doesn't take much practice to learn to
twiddle the volume knob with a finger on your free hand without breaking
Hope this helps,
