No. And if you knew anything about Nirvana, you would know that Kurt would hate that you just said that. Kurt was very anti-fame, and that is one of the biggest reasons why he killed himself. Good day to you, sir.

lol. Have you tried using your pinky or third to last finger? It'd be a little harder, but I've done it before when I injured my hand.

I could argue all day about that statement, but thats for another time...


Its because your not getting a real big pluck with your fingers as you would with a pick or slapping. Try almost popping the strings, and getting your fingers more underneath the strings. It will probably be hard at first... but it should give you more of the sound your looking for.

nirvanna, shut up and let us help you

im assuming your using a pick? you should really have been developing your fingerstyle all along, but your just gonna have to practice dude. alternate your fingers, index and middle with every note you play. kindof let the pads of your finger tips press in and slide off the top of the string, your fingers should naturally land on the string above it. unles of course its the e string, but that really doesnt make a difference in technique.
