so for the last 6 months i have been focusing heavily on using my fingers only, for 17 years playing fwith a pick, fingerstyle was only a small thing i would do, mostly just using a pick for acoustics and electrics. now that i play mainly fingerstyle using a pick for electric i have found i keep tossing the pick and just trying to fingerstyle the electric...

works for a Lindsay Buckingham style with clean, but usually doesnt work so well if using any overdrive:P

anyone else mainly play electrics without a pick as they do their acoustic?

I don't, but Jeff Beck uses his fingers and he's out of this world.
As does Mark Knopfler.

I play fingerstyle a lot on electric, I find it very freeing. With a pick, I often feel very limited to linear melodies and not skipping strings. Without a pick, not only am I feel free to play non-linear melodies and arpeggiated chords easier.

fingerstyle with an electric: would you recommend heavier strings? currently i use a simi hollow body with a medium action, kinda high compared to most. the strings on it are 11s but my acoustics are 12s, just curious if its a big transition to 12s for electrics unless they will feel almost exactly like acoustic 12 guage.

Mark Tremonti does some cool mid-gain fingerstyle stuff.

I wouldn't recommend going any thicker than .11 on an electric as it would probably limit your bending capabilities (unless you're Stevie Ray Vaughn).
