Thanks I have tried those. They are better. Still tough though. I suspect I haven’t stuck with it enough. I may try again. I usually use thumb ‘n’ three unless I’m doing a lot of bluesy raking with my index finger. I suspect it might help me with finger picks to back down to one or two at the most. My past attempts my ring finger really feels in the way whilst wearing a pick.

He also gets a lovely tone and plenty of volume.
