I'm sure a Phillistine for playing with a plectrum.
*hasn't used a plectrum in a dog's age*
I'm hardcore, buddy.
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.
Actually I'm quite happy with what I do...I play with the pick, fingerstyle and hybrid picking interchangeably. I just love folks who make comments like this on a Youtube video.
Here is his response:
And my response:
Not everything has to be Jeff Beck or Derek Trucks.
It's Youtube. Everyone's an expert.
I saw one of these videos in another thread..maybe on HC...very nice stuff!
I say we kill him.
Harsh, but fair.
The youtube community is always so very helpful.
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
He has the best "I'm poopin'!" pictures, though.
Jerry Douglas's notes suck at least 200-300% more frequently.
He's fretting with that harsh metal thing too. Is he allergic to strings?
Maybe two harsh metal things cancel each other out, unless one of those harsh metal things happens to be a fret.
