Hi, I'm Chay Alexander Wright, a guitarist in Los Angeles, California. Today, we're going to learn how to wear guitar finger picks. Okay, so picking style, finger picking style you use your thumb and these three fingers on your hand, pinky is not involved and typically, you'll wear finger picks if you want to pick sound and don't really have nails on your right hand fingers, or your left hand if that's how you pick. And let's see, I'm just going to put these picks on one by one, and show you what they look like as I put them on. Okay, I'm going to start with the thumb, and first you'll see that the thumb it's bigger, a bit wider compared to the other ones that you're going to see, and it really almost looks like a single held guitar pick, a regular guitar pick. So, I'm going to take it and I'm going to place it over the thumb like so, place the grip over the nail like so and you see that the pick part is down. Then I'm going to continue on with the three fingers. So, we'll slide that on like so, continue on with the next, the second finger, slide that on. As you can see already the finger picks are the same. They look the same. They're identical, put the third one on like so. All of them there is what they look like on. So, that's what they all are on, and that's what they sound like. I'm Chay Alexander Wright, and this is how to wear guitar finger picks.
