Thank you all for your compliments and words of encouragement!
The TPR was actually the last one that I used. You can kinda tell cause I fumbled around with it quite a bit as all the rest are standard TD shape for the most part. I am still deciding if I like this one or not. It feels a bit better when I play with 3 fingers but I really don’t want to play that way if I don’t have to.
Yes the wegen is the white one, that kinda gives that one away, was trying to palm them best I could so you couldn’t see em
One of the Ultex picks were #2
Can you guess which one was the bluechip TD50?
so here is what I will give away thus far
2- - Ultex 1.0
5 - Wegen
6 - Bluechip TPR-1R50
As far as a thumb pick I tried it a little with not much success, the issue I am having is that my thumb actually wants to push up against the side of the base of my index or toward my palm if you will. I can hold the pick standard with thumb and index fairly decent until I try to pick out the bass notes in the boom chuck rhythm pattern and then I just can’t get my thumb to want to go up there and grab that bass note.
having my index finger pointed out there does become a hair uncomfortable but not near as uncomfortable as trying to hold it the standard way right now. I think getting my index finger out of the mix for now is allowing my thumb to articulate a bit better as I am not usning that first tendon in my hand as much that way.
I think at this point I really need to make a conscious effort to slow down and take a break and hope that my hand returns, whats so darn frustrating though is that I can use the mouse and keyboard just fine with my hands but can’t get em to pick!
