Some may have read my thread about wanting to learn pedal steel guitar. https://www.tdpri.com/threads/i-hear-a-call-for-pedal-steel-guitar.1067128/ In the meantime, I’m making a huge transition to using fingerpicks for my electric playing. For 30 years I used to flatpick almost exclusively and never really played picking since my first two years learning classical as a kid. Then last year during first lockdown I switched to hybrid picking, because I wanted to be able to grab more sophisticated chord voicings and play chord melody involving string jumps. Then last month I decided to trade my pick for a thumbpick. Considering pedal steel players seem to almost universally use a plastic thumbpick in conjunction with two metal fingerpicks, I decided to try it on the guitar: For the first couple of hours it felt so awkward that I thought I would never use them again. Then the next day I decided to give it another try, and I don’t know if it’s because I had slept on it but it clicked. After three days I’m hooked: I gained in speed because the picks glide on the strings. For faster solo licks I crawl the middle finger and use thumb and index in alternance. And I like the tone I get with this combo. My understanding is that it’s what banjo players use too, right? But I can’t think of guitar players that use them for electric: do you have any experience with it?
