Subject: RE: Building stamina - guitar backup
Ah the little plastic thingy. I pretend it is part of my thumb and forefinger. And still manage to get it sideways on occasion. Someone said it is called "pick control."
I can certainly relate to the least amount of muscle possible theory! I have a song I've been trying to perfect for years and I always tense up during it - that is why I can't do the dang thing!
Goes back to practice - practice - practice - :-)
BTW - they make picks that go on the thumb - banjo pickers know about them. *BG*
