Thread Name: Flat picking + two fingers. for Marion
Subject: RE: Flat picking + two fingers. for Marion
The OTHER style I try to teach my more ambitious students is "flatpicking" with the thumb and index. The masters of this style were Reverend Gary Davis, (check out "Oh Lord, Search my Heart") and on banjo, Eddie Adcock. This is something I use all the time, and for me is more fluid than "fingerpicking" with a flatpick and two fingers.

It's great to learn all these styles. They add variety and colour to your pickin'.
