I don't use the pinky on my right hand. At least not for guitar picking. Nose picking perhaps...

That's just the way I learned to play and it works for me.

Thanks for replying. :yes:

That was cool RB... Don't know how I missed that one. Now the curtain is torn down on the mysterious RB sound! Now, with only 20 years of practice to emulate it I'll be all set!

Thanks Todd, and all those I forgot to thank.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

I can't get the video to play, what do I need on my system?

I click on the link, it downloads and then tells me it has nothing related with it.

Regards....Barry

Apple's Quicktime player should play it.

It's a QuickTime movie, so Apple's QuickTime should do it.

Fingers might be easier, but overall I find the hybrid is easier for me than switching from a flatpick to fingers and back again. I intermix flatpicking and fingerpicking all the time, so this works great for me. It's not for everyone.

Here is a video I put together as a demonstration of hybrid picking. That is, fingerpicking while holding a flatpick. I'm not much of a teacher, but I was having fun playing with 2 cameras and video editting software, which allowed me to inset a closer view of my right hand. Anyway, this is almost 10MB, so it might be a while if you are on dialup.

Cool stuffs! :winkthumb:

That last bit was cute hehe - may I ask, what type of video editor did you use? I'm getting into that stuff a little bit but so far I'm limited to just creating slideshows. ...some day I'd love to record a tutorial/lesson type deal.

I used Final Cut Pro on a mac to do the spilt screen.

Hey, uh... not sure if I missed it or not, but what's that tune in the video? And, do you have the tab? :D I've been interested in hybrid picking for the last year or so, but I have no idea how or what to practice. >.<

This is a little bit of a tune called "Different TImes" by Lawrence Juber. At one time - years ago, he had the tab on his website.

Juber does not play hybrid. He uses bare fingers all the time - as far as I know. Perhaps something easier to get the hybrid thing going first.

Hello everyone,

I just watched "rockerbobs" video demonstrating hybrid picking
I enjoyed it so much that it inspired me to post this question.

Would this style lend itself to being played on a semi-acoustic guitar rather than the standard acousic steel strung guitar. ???

I really fancy buying a semi acoustic ( something like an epiphone alleykat which is a little smaller that say a Gretch ) as an addition to my acoustic but have no idea how they are suited for fingerpickin.

Thanks
