Okay...sorry about the double questions...but that's the way it happened in my mind.
I've seen these threads going all the way across my screen about whether to use a pick or fingers, and the general census seems to be "learn both!" So I have. Somwhat. But I have a problem. When I play fingerstyle, say, on the D, I can mute the E and A with my right hand...sort of climbing up(away) the strings as I go higher. When I play with a pick, I can't mute these strings, and they end up ringing. I usually try to use my palm to mute them, but i was told that this wasn't really very good technique. What is? how do I pick without ringing and without palm muting? Help!
