I've wondered about this for a while now. Any of you guys out there play your teles with just your fingers live? I've heard Keith Urban plays this way and I'm sure there's others. But when I try to do it, it really doesn't sound right if im plugged into an amp. I can fingerpick really well on an acoustic and I'm good on my tele but only if im playing it acoustically. Once I plug it in it doesn't sound right. Especially when I hit open strings. Because of this I've been hybrid picking(pick and fingers) almost exclusively for the last year or so. I'm getting pretty ok at it. It's just weird. If I play a really fast lick with just my fingers it's no problem. But if I try to hybrid pick that same lick, it's much more difficult. And like I said, even if I play it correctly, it doesn't sound right through an amp (with only my fingers). I guess my question is this: Is there anything I can do like change amp settings, strings, setup, etc that will make it sound right? How do people do it without it sounding bad? Maybe I just need more practice. For now I'll stick with the hybrid style. God knows I could use more practice with that. Lol Thanks. Gary.
