I agree Dave
I had been using a flat pick pretty much all my life. I'm 53, and just started learning fingerstyle, using a thumbpick, and playing with harmonics.
you're never too old to learn something new.
I also have to agree with you Dave. I have been teaching for over ten years and have seen players into their 70s learn to play fingerstyle with great success. My oldest student right now is in his 80s and rocks fingerstyle.
Hey Charles, I take it there's a lot of application for hybrid in bluegrass? I love bluegrass, but haven't quite gotten into picking it up yet. Is it really hybrid intensive?
