Greetings! I'm interested in adding picking technique to my repetoire. I've played finger style for a very long time, and I've resisted playing with a pick because I was too lazy work on it. I've come to realize that many of my favorite tones on records come from pick style playing. I just need to do this. So I've looked at the Bass Player article on the holding the pick and I've practiced a bit with the pick. I get the general idea, but I need to refine it a bit. One issue I'm having is that the pick sometimes "sticks" on the string. Any pointers there? Any other pointers on how to practice picking? Are there excercises that are specifically geared toward picking? How hard does one usually pick at the string? Where is the most common place on the string to pick? Nearer to the neck or the bridge? Thanks!
