    though james and kirk both have used finger picking...
    u can also play this with a pick..its a pretty good string skipping exercise if i may say so...slowly but steadily. ..u will get a hang of it..just be patient and put in the time.

    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    It is easiest to play the above tab using finger picking but as dharmatma said it is also possible to play this with a pick (held between index and middle finger) and thumb to pick the low E. Difficult to get used to but nice to show-off.

    you can still play it with the pick with a "cheat". try play it as :


    you'll get the sound but with an added percussive sound

    @disturbed...even i found it hard in the beginnin..i kept hitting the wrong strings time and again...
    finger picking this is fine...but if u want a work out for ur right hand..use a pick..
    it will help u to play string skipping patterns..
    just my 0.2.
    i hardly know to play though.

    no it wont sound right it will have the basic sound there but with an added extra - the percussive element but like i said its an easy cheat method that only does a half job. i don't recommend it but if someone is getting frustrated like crap then they can use that to get an idea of the sound.

    True rabi:) Anyways, no big deal dude@Shane, you just need to practice a bit, check out fingerpicking tutorials in the tutorials forum or do a search.
