When I first started to play the Telecaster in 1980, I was coming from a background of a lot of acoustic fingerpicking using a thumbtack and 3 metal fingerpicks. Playing with only a flatpick felt weird, and so I put fingerpicks on my middle and ring fingers. I played that way for several years before I learned that James Burton did something similar (flatpick + 1 fingerpick). It always sounded great that way, a big steel/chicken picking tone. In the 90s I dropped the fingerpicks because I was tired of keeping track of them at gigs. Bare fingers have their charms, but it's different for sure. Lately I've been trying the fingerpicks again, and damn they sound good. It only took a few minutes to remember what to do. Anyone else play using this technique?
