: Hey...just wondering...what's the best way to keep your hands from tiring to quickly besides just shear practice? I'm sure its happened to the best of you but what I'm saying is, Do you think its more of a hand position thing...
: I'm trying to use my fingers more as opposed to a pick..

: Thanks all

The easiest way is to lighten your right hand attack. If you pluck the string moving your plucking finger DOWN on the edge of the string, as opposed to plucking across the string, you'll get a good tone without having to apply so much force.
Your left hand won't have to hold down the strings so hard, so both hands will have an easier time.

Good Luck,
