    The weirdest thing dawned on me this weekend when I was practicing. I have almost completely stopped using a pick. When I started playing, it was 100% picking. I am not sure what happened. I tried playing some of our songs with a pick and it was very uncomfortable. Plus I noticed how much more tone I get with my fingers.

    My plucking fingers are getting very calloused (sp?), which I believe is a good thing.

    Well, just thought I'd share that lil tidbit of useless info with ya.

    The weirdest thing happened to me today....
    I played with a pick...for the first time in a VERY long time. I liked the attack it gave my tone...and it felt pretty good overall.
    Then...I put it down and went back to my fingers. I just love that "au naturel" feeling....:D
