Thread Name: Revolutionary Pick Thinking
Subject: RE: Revolutionary Pick Thinking

I still think that my initial theory (re: upstroke's connection with the index finger) is interesting and plausible. Alas, it seems not to be true. I've done some experimenting. I don't find it any more intuitive to flatpick with a pick attached to my index finger than I did with a thumbpick pinched between my thumb and index finger.

C'est La Vie.

I have, however, had an absolute breakthrough with flatpicking. If anyone's interested in that tale let me know and I'll describe it in a new thread (to keep subjects thread-related).
