who needs ah pick...all good but very nice solo at 2 min mark
Great!! I believe this is the same dude I saw playing with Gene Harris? Tasty and swinging which is an absolute given if Gene Harris hires you.
I wonder how many people over his life as a guitarist told him he was doing it wrong. I love seeing guys that did it their own way.
Gene Harris really, I'll have to look for that. Gene is a great jazzy bluesy pianist. I really like what Ron Eschete' played with Gene...
I play finger style about 80% of the time but I use more than one finger style. I use my thumb and two or three fingers with my thumb playing bass notes and strumming through arpeggios. I use my thumb to play some leads and switch in and out of three finger at will. I use upstrokes with my thumb nail for attach and to push my amp to break up. I almost never thumb strum chords. That right there is a good collection of variations for tone and style. I still use a flat pick. I use it mostly for attack but also when I want better sustain. Finger style using the pads of my fingers has softer attack and just doesn't sustain as well. I think of it the same way as forehand and backhand for tennis. You need both and all the variations that come with them.
I play with a pick about 60% of the time now. I used to pay only with a pick. And even when I play with one, I often hybrid pick.
Here Jim talks about his stylings, interesting
He kinda looks like he learned to play before he discovered straps.
