I don’t like using a pick. Not because I’m a finger-snob, but because I never could get comfortable having a pick between my fingers. It also hinders any possibility of switching to fingers and back to pick mid song.
So “I came up” with this use for my index fingernail.
I can get a relatively high speed with it, even using only the nail side of the finger and I find it very very comfortable.
I know that using the thumb as a pick is widely accepted, but it’s not quite the sound I’m after. I’m curious, because I never heard anyone talking about it nor have i seen it as a “documented” technique.
What are your thoughts?
