Thread Name: Playing away a fingernail
Subject: RE: Playing away a fingernail
The decibel issue is an important one... Especially if not plugged in... I'd rather use the picks (plugged in or not) just because it's cleaner and you can lift the bass strings better with them...

BTW, I have been using the same 3 picks for the last 20 years... Plastic on thumb and index finger and metal on the middle finger...

I've seen Brozman pick and he's real good but what I haven't seen him do if throw in a strummed down stroke for accent between traditional claw hammer style picking... I do that and on those songs the picks gotta come off because that down stoke with a finger pick is too tricky and if you don't hit it perfect then the pick gets pulled off...
