Here's my story guys: When I first took acoustic guitar lessons, I was taught to play as a righty. I'm a lefty. Needless to say, I gave up and switched to bass. *I still play bass as if I were a righty, even though I'm a lefty. I play fingerstyle and have had a lot of success. I can play very fast with just the index and middle. So, I hear a lot of talk about "cheating during fast passages by using a pick." I find it more difficult to play with a pick. Is it because I'm using my gimpy hand to hold the pick? Does anyone else find it easier to play with their fingers?
