Hello, I was just wondering if there are any metal bands who's guitarists use finger picking? I understand that playing rythm in a metal band with fingers would be hard, very hard, but what about lead? Are there any lead metal guitarists that use fingers?

I'm pretty sure Zakk Wylde throws in some fingerpicking/chicken pickin' **** in his solos.

Ive Hybrid Picked parts of "Stabwound" By Necrophagist, although it's easier to just play it regularly. Ive also made a few riffs that are Hyrbid Pickable, but you could still play them with normal picking.

I wouldn't go plain out Fingerpicking, But Hybrid Picking, So you still have a pick on you.

Hetfield finger-picks his slow solos. Hallowed Be Thy Name's intro is finger-picked, etc.

In my world, the color RED doesn't exist.

Just the other day I tried to fingerpick a bunch of metal songs. It works, and it sounds cool.

^Brent Hinds he hybrid picks and finger picks an assmortment of things and the acoustic guitars in Metallica's songs are like 95% of the time finger picked (Fade to Black is the best example) and I tend to hybrid pick most string skipping things <.< not bragging or anything

If you get a basic

G-------5----7---8-----3----5----
C----00--00--0---000--00--00-

ish riff, you can do it pretty easily with fingerpicking, and it sounds really good, nice and smooth but still heavy.
Soon, death metal's drums will be so fast only computers will be able to listen to it.

94? Not bad. It shall improve >=)
