What is the proper way to play it with a pick or fingerpicked, cant figure it out. thanks
I dont really know. Scar tissue is played with pick on the lower (thicker) strings and fingers on the higher ones.
He plays it with a pick, but when he plays it live he doesn't play chords.. i have no idea what that damn genius is doing.. he's kinf of arpegiating it. He is holding the chords but he mutes the notes he doesn't want in the chord and kind of sweeps it. rock hard to get it sounding like him. plus he rarely plays it the same twice
the intro is played with fingers, then he uses a pick for the verses, and slightly turns down his volume on his guitar because using a pick makes it a tad louder, he normally arpeggiates it differently each time like Applehead said
perfect, everything i needed to know, thanks alot
pick will do a better job....
I use a pick, only because I included a solo section. It can be done well either way, though.
Fingerpick it on the intro and use a pick on the verse. But he uses this insane technique...he sounds perfect.
What makes the intro sound so good is that he overdubbed sustaining notes in certain spots with a pick. He may have used a capo as well in the recording to ensure the notes rang clear, but live he always barres it.
I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers... I am pretty sure Under The Bridge is played with a pick... but I might be wrong.
I've seen a few live performances and I see him using a pick.
click this perhaps this wil help
dos he use a capo?
not that I can see
No. As I said before, the song is fingerpicked in the intro, without a capo (at least live), and the rest is played with a pick. The only reason the intro sounds so strong is because of the overdubbed notes on the studio version.
