Thread Name: Fingers or Plectrum?
Subject: RE: Fingers or Plectrum?
Well, on the subject of picks... I've never been able to get comfortable with the fingerpicks either (I keep 'em around, just in case I feel like torturing myself), and I used to use a flatpick exclusively, but developed a nasty habit of dropping them during gigs. So, I started picking with fingers... only since I couldn't quite grasp the conventional method, I began using JUST my index finger (I grow that nail out a lil bit). So now if I drop it during performance I have a nice strong nail to strum or pick the old 12 with!
