The vid should load for me by dinnertime.
To throw in my 2 pesos on picking, I do 90+% of my flatpicking- whether lead or comping- hybrid-style with my ring finger adding accent notes. For a song like Crazy Fingers, I tuck the pick into the crook of my middle finger (amputation is strictly optional)and fingerpick w/ thumb-index-ring... easily sliding the pick over to the thumb when its time to solo. I believe for S.Lee I hybrid pick the whole thing...
The pinky huh? Are you able to smoothly transfer that back to your thumb and index? Nevermind, just caught it, nicely done
oh and I saw a lot of shows where Jerry sang ".44"... although I always anticipated ".45" (maybe because it rhymes)
