I've been a finger player for a few years mainly because I couldn't use a pick. But as has been advised many times, I'm coming across situations where being skilled at both would be very useful. So for a couple of month's now I've forced myself to keep useing a pick and of course it's improving! Fifths & octaves seem quite natural. The old story- keep practicing and it WILL happen. I tend to use a style where I down stroke mainly & up stroke for the first note when I change strings. What Style do you use? and has anyone got any exercises to develope picking technique? Thank you.
