do you play using your thumb, fingers, or whole hand?
thumb and first three fingers.
same as JT.
thumb and three
Thumb and first two fingers - the option I want is never included in these stupid polls. Come to think of it - what is a poll doing in General Instruction at all - how can you learn from a poll!! ??
Surely this is just technique anyway?
yeah, yeah, technique, that's the ticket.......
my little sister who is learning classical guitar taught me how to use 5 fingers, so now! thats the only way i play, 90% of the time...... any other way is the thumb and the first 2 fingers for more simpler things.... god bless little sisters! who woulda known they could help you at playing bass? =)
Thumb and Two Fingers....
Or better known as a pick! Muwahahaha.
Well 90% of the time, just first two fingers whenever I play jazz or rock or whatnot that isn't punk.
thumb and two fingers. Ive never heard of the three finger teqnique.
pends where on the board we're talkin about. Naturally, I use four fingers (no thumb) past the 5th fret. Thumb and 3 fingers in the first 5 frets. Sometimes in first position I'll use pinky and ringy together for one fret. Survival is adaptation my friend.
Whatever float's my boat.
Whatever is right for the part. I use thumb and first two fingers (third for muting) and I do a lot of finger picking on chords. You have to experiment with everything. Who knows you might stumble on something no one else does.........depends on how many beers you've had........lol.
Seriously, work with what is comfortable and you will develop what we like to call "your own style". There are basic fundamentals that you should always work on but when it comes time to try new stuff, the sky is the limit.
I'm also a thumb & three.
I usually use thumb and next 3 fingers, but I've been known to use all 5. I think it's a position TBer Xush called "the claw". Always thought that was kinda funny.
Four fingers and occasionally the thumb
er.... just two fingers.........very occasionally three for that big finish......... my thumb stays anchored..... i'd like to use it........ but it's just stuck there. Don't most people use two?? Maybe you're just all too clever!
my middle finger and my indexfinger.
more =! better
