i was doing a gig once with a band i was in. before hand we had been drinking fairly heavily. it came to our last song of the set, which also happened to be the fastest. due to the influx of alcohol, my guitarist started the song much faster than we usually play it, the drummer was perfectly able to keep up, but as a finger picker i kept missing notes as i just couldn't move my damn fingers fast enough, which obviously made the song sound awful. the only thing i could do was to start picking with my ring finger as well, which i had never done before. but due to the pressure on me i managed to pull it off and kept in time. i'm glad it happened now though as it means i can play with more dexterity. any similar experiences?
