    I use both. I use picks about 30% of the time and 70% fingers.

    fingers all the way man. nothing against a pick, i just hate using them.
     
  7. I love the sound generated by picks, but I use my fingers 100% of the time. I just can't keep up with picks.

    Yeah, it's small enough to get a good pick tone.

    Now THAT'S an understatement!

    I'm moving this to Technique, but I'm closing it first. Pacman can reopen it if he sees fit.
