Trying some righthanded picking. I have electrical tape on my left index finger, as I've seen some metal musicians do. The "guitar callous fanatics" would seriously ostracize me for it. Lol. "No! YOU MUST DEVELOP AND BUILD CALLOUSES!" *imagines some guy in his kitchen, making creatine mix for his guitar callouses* Actually, the tape doesn't really seem to hinder anything. My clumsiness was for other reasons, such as... i'm more adjusted to holding the guitar lefthanded. N the electrical tape seemed to add distortion to certain parts where I wanted to, but a bare finger didn't do it well. It's been wondered why I would post my unpolished practices, but only a bandgeek would understand. As someone who played flute for 3 yrs in school n practiced at school everyday, as well as sometimes in the summer. I always had constructive criticism from myself n from bandclass. Plus, a lot of the stuff, after I practice it so long, i'm done with it, so.. I spent several hours today working on this, had a few practices of it recorded. Still couldn't manage to get it just right, but I think its bc of how I was holding the guitar n where/how I was sitting. I definitely have a preference for lefthanded picking, but I needed to adjust my shoulderstrap n everything n I probably would've been more comfortable w righthanded.
