    thats a hard habit to break .... took my friend a year with the patches .... half year with the gum .... and a month of rehab. i hope you make it through alive. wont somebody think of the children and caluses!!!!!
     
  3. Not to worry, my friend.. I definately haven't given up finger style in any way. I just thought that I needed some practice with the pick, so I did just that - practiced. I'm going to be using more fingerstyle now.. I already calluses, because I used to be a strictly fingerstyle person. There's even thicker calluses on my left hand.. my pinky suprisingly has the biggest one, it's insanely thick.. Once I peeled it off and I swear my finger go lighter:eek:
    Bottom line: There's nothing wrong with pick playing!

    with a name like that I thought you were going to say you've been strait slappin the bass...picks are cool too, if you're into that sort of thing...
     
  5. I like to do both. Just different sounds I guess. I think I still like fingers better because they are a bit more expressive and fun to do.
