    Tuck has amazing touch. One of my favorite YouTube covers. The light touch of all the string players is just amazing.

    It helps if your left hand fingers are at least 10% longer than normal humans, and you are not afflicted with arthritis. :rolleyes: Alas, poor me, I have arthritis, and my left hand fingers look like Oscar Meyer wieners.

    @Jelly Roll Horton thanks now I have that song in my head! I wish I was an Oscar Mayer wiener, that is what I really want to be. Cause if I were and Oscar Mayer wiener everyone would be in love with me.

    This is great. I struggle with keeping my touch light. This video was inspiring for that for sure.

    Im sorry Stefan. Ive always been a fan of your posts but i have to say Im very dissapointed that you cant play that Etude. I have written separately to @Synchro and @thunder58 to have you permanently barred from the forum!
    Great thread. Inspirational challenge. I never even tried hybrid picking. Another technique i will suck at.

    A truly dedicated man would use super glue and work until it wore off! ;):cool:
