    What about using a coin the way Brian May does? The guy is hardly plebian in music circles.

    I use both fingers and a pick depending on what I am doing. Sometimes I use the back end of the pick (the rounded end) to soften the attack or my thumb.

    I've been listening to a lot of Chet Atkins, trying to figure out why every 2nd or 3rd note sucked. Turns out the culprit was this.

    There's always Freddy King with his banjo pick on the index finger in addition to the kludgy plastic thumb pick...



    Terrible, I tell you :weebz:

    He has the best "I'm poopin'!" pictures, though.

  37. Maybe two harsh metal things cancel each other out, unless one of those harsh metal things happens to be a fret.
