Some 80s shred with 'The Wayfarer' 4 months 2 weeks ago #19312

Having some fun with the 80s shred preset. A bit self indulgent I know :) Added a compressor
pedal before it. Maybe a light pitch shifter too, not sure now.
Anyway, hope you guys enjoy it.

Good technique!

Do you use your thumbpick as your main pick? I tried that but cannot get used to it. I also tried modifying the thumb-pick by cutting it's edge and glueing a regular pick to the base of the thumb-pick, so I can have the advantages of using a regular pick while letting my other three fingers (point, middle and ring) free to pluck other strings. I was partially successful at that but still not convinced about going that route. I always felt more comfortable using either a pick or my fingers, or worst case, my pick AND fingers (mid and ring).

Yeah, use it as a normal pick too. Took me a while to get used to. Use a right handed thumb pick.
Thought about doing what you said there but decided against that. Apparently they make some harnass
type things now. With that you can use your normal pick. Chris Broderick is using something
like that. Maybe worth looking into.
I am not gonna change to that anymore I think, to used to this now.

Thanks. Yes, those are the ones I meant. Didn't want to be dependent on online ordering so never tried them. Use a right handed one now(I am a lefty), those feel better to me.

You know what they say about left-handed people? Well, "if the right-side of the brain controls the left-side of the body, then only left-handers are in their right mind.

What about people like me who are right-handed but play right-handed guitars flipped over like a lefty (headstock pointing to the right)? I guess I'm just outta my mind? ;)
