Thread Name: Playing away a fingernail
Subject: RE: Playing away a fingernail
Well, guitarist Bob Brozman uses finger/thumb picks and gets an amazing range of tones, attack ... you name it. And, he seems to be able to do any combination of down/up picking.
I think most guitarist - for whatever reason - don't persevere long enough with fingerpicks.
I recall banjoist Pete Wernick, in one of his books, advising players to wear their picks as they go about their daily business as a way of bonding with them.
