ive always played guitar with my fingers (apart frm usin a pick on strumming and easy pickin things) and it worries me that most ppl i no use a pick and advise me to use one. Is this a problem or am i unique? lol @ unique i'll probably get flamed for this but its a step im willing to take.

Now I have your attention, witness the awesomeness that is my sig

Lulz at AIDs, Robbie Kreiger never used a pick. If it's comfortable for you, go for it.

Nahh. I spent the first few years of playing without ever using a pick.

It means I'm weaker with a pick than fingerpicking, but its not too bad.

That said, spend a bit of your practice time using a pick. It'll be worth it in a while....

err?

thats fine.... Mark knopfler? Lindsay Buckingham?

If you're playing metal without a pikc, you're awesome !

But it all depends on style, you wouldnt be able to play classical gas with a pick (technically yeah u can but why bother)

There is no wrong way, there are plenty of guitarists that finger pick (or do you mean you strum with your fingers?) either way I say its best to cover both grounds because they both have different sounds (pick being harder fingers being softer etc)

I didn't used to play with a pick when I started, then I got an electric and had to learn to use one, It doesnt take very long to adjust really. Always an advantage to be able to play with both though
