    Tuning down often makes it sound better, but you do not have to. It'll probably sound fine if you don't. I personally never tune down. There are many people who don't. As for using a pick or fingers, it's really up to you. Some people prefer using fingers while others prefer to use picks. It has to do with what's more comfortable, what's easier, and what's better for speed. So all in all, IT'S YOUR CHOICE. Rock on.

    The legendary "Philo" was a pick player..I dont see the logic in tuning down to play the song live... I've played that tune hundreds of times over the years in different bands and it was always played in G
