People absolutely love to see horrible accidents and murders, as well as any sort of fighting really. Just look at the news. We wouldn't watch it if it was boring.

I usually use 1+3, but some riffs might need me to use 1+4 because of a quick shift involving fingers 2/3. Torn Between Scylla and Charybdis by Trivium features one such riff.

I just do what's comfortable. No sense breaking your fingers just to play it like someone else does.

We typically assign one finger per fret. While it's technically correct to use 1 and 3, the world won't end if you don't.

I use 1 and 4 and have never had a problem, but I did learn to become comfortable with 1 and 3 as well for that extra versatility if it was ever needed.

I named my guitar after my GF once... It was tempremental, the neck was too fat, and I couldn't turn down the volume, just like her...

Yeah, me too! I was thinking that maybe my hands were too small to ever play properly.... Of course, when playing with that extra third string 1,3 and 4 come into play. I find that slightly tricky getting my 3 and 4 fingers close together - they don't like each other's company....
