Good one Steve thanks for putting it up
Steve, haha, yes, you never leave your fingers behind!
Thanks for the info about timber tones, I'll check them out.
Too bright is a good description but I guess it's 'horses for courses' as the expression goes. I suppose quills are best for faster strumming/Galax style playing
I bought my leather picks from timber-tones. com I think you get a similar but slightly brighter effect than with a natural wool felt pick
i guess the advantage of finger picking is that you never forget your fingers!
Thanks Steven and Mary too
I'm using a leather pick on this video
Leather! Did you make it? I've grown fond of thick felt picks, but a regular pick comes in handy for a bright sound now and then. But you know me, I'm mostly just a finger picker permanently stuck in the key of D! I thought it was cool that you were using an authentic quill, but I did notice that the sound was almost too bright.
Mary your right in saying I used to use a Quill but I find the sound can be a bit harsh sometimes so it depends what I'm playing whether I use one or not
It's also tricky to get a lenghty of quill 'just right' and when you do it doesn't last too long
So I've experimented with felt and leather picks for a softer mellowed tone but no piece of plastic or rubber is safe from my attention. They're all fair game if I can cut em small enough! I'm using a leather pick on this video
Thanks again for your comment
Steve, I admire your light touch and your musicality, really pretty rendition. Didn't you start out using a quill? How do you like the pick?
Good playing, Steve!
