Thanks Neil, I can't grow good strong finger nails and I've tried to use a thumb pick, don't like the sound, so I just use the fleshy tips of my fingers to finger pick and always had doubts about it. Now I feel good about playing that way, once again thanks for the tip.written by Jim Gooch, December 11, 2009

Hi Neil, How about a video on [u]how[/u] to use a thumbpick. I love the "Chet" sound and the good thumping Travis sound a thumbpick helps produce but I've always had a problem adjusting to not having the flesh of my thumb hitting the strings and the angle I need to hold my thumb at when I try to use a thumbpick. Thanks!written by Lee Marcus, April 30, 2009
Even with a high speed internet connection, the video took 10 minutes to download? Not good!written by Kurt Feuer, April 28, 2009
