Colin Hodgkinson often used a hybrid technique of pick plus remaining fingers for chordal lines. and on a few Simple Minds songs ("The American" and "Wonderful in young life") Derek Forbes used a pick on low notes and popped the octave (which initially had me baffled as to how he switched so fast from slap to pick on "The American") what other players have combined pick & finger techniques at the same time? any TB'ers got their own hybrid techniques? using fingerstyle with 3 fingers I often play octaves/double guitar lines during a guitar solo with a one guitar lineup- but this is tricky when using a pick- especially when using pick all-downstrokes and trying to combine finger upstrokes- also bringing in relative volume problems. wide string spacing helps.
