On Joscho Stephan's performance of Nuages at http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=xV8QvglnJ9U
he alternates between fingerpicking and plectrum use. Watch the end of the first bridge, while he is accompanying the fiddle player. He seems to pull his pick up into his palm or between a couple of fingers, play open-handed for a while using several right hand fingers, and then recover the pick and resume picking.
Any idea where the pick is going? I've been experimenting with a few methods, but none seem really promising. Obviously with practice all sorts of physical tricks are possible, but this would have to be very reliable -- dropping the pick is quite embarrassing
. I have tended to stick my pick in my mouth, or use pick-and-fingers techniques, but neither really lets me do what I want. Thanks for any suggestions. -- Trevor
