Mig welding overhead is mostly a matter of getting comfortable. Again, POSITION.
The same settings and techniques that are used for flat and horizontal also work on overhead. But if you typically weld really hot, reducing the wire speed by 10% might help.
If you're just looking to keep things simple, this one MIG technique works for all positions.
By tracing the front leading edge of the puddle, this one single MIG welding technique gets penetration in every position.
