Be great to just get people's insights and observations on this. Probably obvious, but Jerry interleaves using pick and fingerpicking, usually depending on song section / texture. It's a continuing project to figure out the logic that governs his preferences in this, often it seems during vocals, especially on his own songs, fingerpick, and during solos or noodling over Bob's vocal sections, the pick. And of course additionally he occasionally picks with ring finger while using the pick.
Althea, good example of vocal sections fingerpicking, but check out in this video, he's palming his pick (anyone know exactly where), then plays first phrase of solo (1:15) fingerpicking), adjusts volume (1:20), deploys pick, and plays next phrase with pick. Amazing how fast he switches back and forth, palming and pick, and also how incredibly consistent the tone is from the first fingerpicked phrase to the second picked phrase. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCENueDxmQM
Anyway, sorry for long message, just hoping for some cool insights on this.
