anyone switch between the two when playing live? I'm wondering if people compensate for volume differences/low end level differences. I've played mainly fingerstyle since I started (9 yrs ago), only occasionally practising using a pick. I switch in a high mid boost to get a pseudo-pick sound on some songs. at a gig last week I tried leaving the eq flat and actually using a pick instead (less fret noise, better definition, I thought). but I found string-crossing very difficult and put the pick away after a couple of songs. oh well, I'll stick to fingerstyle live.
