Fingers = hurting.

And it is an electric guitar. That's just sad.

After about a 6 year break, I recently decided to pick up my guitar again. I'd forgotten how bad I am at picking. It came up in conversation with a friend last week (he's an amazing guitarist), and he said he realized he couldn't really pick when he heard Radiohead's "Street Spirit" -- and figured out that it wasn't fingerpicked. It is a guy, with a pick and a guitar -- fingers flying at mach 3.

Just for reference, check out the video on youtube: Radiohead's "Street Spirit"

So I sat down for an hour or so today and started picking it out. And boy do my fingers hurt. I bet if I played more than once every 6 years, I wouldn't be such a weenie.
