    I would think the top of the fingernail (say index finger in this example) on a down strum.

    Congrats Stan on an entire gig without a dropped pick!

    Tell that dude that you are the leader! You're a guitarist for gosh sakes!
    You're in my sight, but there's a mist on my lens!

    And things tend to go around full circle. After months of playing without a plectrum, I have gone back to playing at least 2/3 of the time with a pick. And then I'll palm the thing and play with my fingers for awhile, as the passage of the music seems to ask for it. It was just a phase I was going through.

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
