    in most of the videos he plays with picks
     
  6. depends
    in lithium for example:
    fingered upto bass solo (i think)
    then deff pick from then in

    heart shaped box was deff fingered
    come as you are deff pick

    its hard to tell i've just seen pictures
    so it isn't going to effect your playing alot

    if you do finger and want his sound try playing with treble (amp) tone (guitar)
    later
