Play until she breaks up with you.

You should go like them...even if you don't like them.

i use picks but try to finger pick on occasion, but i usually do a combonation of both. i'll use the pick to strike a string and then pluck a different string with another finger at the same time. not sure what it's called....plucking?

^ Hybrid picking, I believe.

there it is. i knew there was some term for it.

I use both, it all depends on the feel I want for the song.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

if im playing acoustic generally i don't use a pick but for electric i do most of the time

its cool since i usually use my fingers to strum and whatnot the nail on my index finger has become harder and grows a lot slower than my fretting hand

I do both. But mostly just use my fingers because i never carry picks around with me in the house so when i get impulses to play guitar i often dont have a pick around. But I do play with picks a bit.

Mostly fingerpicking, but it depends on what i'm playing...

My favourite pick btw is Orange Star Pick!
The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side...
