Thread Name: Playing away a fingernail
Subject: RE: Playing away a fingernail
My thinkin' is that you should play what sounds best for the instrument and style of music...

I use picks exclusively on my Lowebow (see "Sidewalk Bob" You Tube)...

I also use them on my "Back Porch" 5 string "slab" geetar (see Ted Crocker guitars)

I alternate bare fingers and picks on my S. Yari and Washburn ES 10 Resonator depending on the requirements for the song...

The main thing is to play and sound as good as you can, ain't it???
