Like, should i have a finger tip that is big enough to cover 2 strings or is there a way to approach it as far as technique goes. Cause i dont seem to have enough sized fingertip
Do you mean playing two strings with one finger of the picking hand or thumb pick with a little strum or fretting two strings with a barre?
