Thread Name: Fingers or Plectrum?
Subject: RE: Fingers or Plectrum?
I had 20 years of flat-picking before being introduced to fingerstyle guitar; what a waste - at least 12 year's worth of standing still in the advancement department!

I am eternally grateful to the guy who showed me TIMRIMI to get me started. The last 15 years of playing have been a revelation to me.
Still use the pick occasionally though - especially when extra volume is needed. Would love to be able to use fingerpicks - just can't hack it. Would love also to be able to do the combination plectrum/fingerstye trick but can't seem to master that either.

Good luck to anyone who can master the lot - shame on anyone who says "there's only one way" (almost like a touch of religious bigotry).
