I play with 2 fingers cause I walk with 2 legs.

    A human running on two legs is faster than a human running on four legs!

    I always enjoy bass players that feel that if 2 fingers is good, then 3 fingers must be better, and 4 even better still; after all more is more, right? I suppose, but it's interesting how many flamenco guitarists play primarily with 2 fingers on faster passages, and it never seems to slow them down in the slightest.

    It's much harder to think fast than to play fast.

    Much harder...

    Good idea.

    Now, I'm guessing you use one finger for fretting, and one finger for plucking, correct? Marvelous. I applaud your restraint.
  9. Ah, that may be true. But it's probably because a human doesn't have much(if any) experience running on four legs. If the human practiced with four legs enough, I bet he'd be just as good, if not better than the human running on two legs. :)
  10. But a ball, having no legs or arms, can outroll any human given a decent enough kick.

    ... :smug:

    (I'm a two finger person. Imho, as long as you can play everything you want with two fingers, don't complain and go practise).

    And harder still to listen fast.
