Subject: RE: Flat picking + two fingers. for Marion
Sinister, means "on the the left", and most of us do all of that complicated fretboard work with the left hand--so I guess that makes us all "sinister"--As far as the FP+2 being hard, well, yes--It is funny, too, because, as I mentioned above, there were a lot of guys who played this way where I grew up--they tended to be older guys, from the South, often with Brilliantined hair, who played in bar bands--At the same time, there was a parallel folkie world full of "sensitive" guys with their black turtlenecks, Broadside songbooks , struggling with double-thumbing with no idea that these guys were way ahead of them--
