For you pickers (that should cover about 99% of you all), this lesson will be a challenge. Part of Jeff Beck's style and tremendous technique lies in his use of fingers to play notes rather than a pick. Over the years, Beck has used a pick. His pick use seems to occur in phases. Most of the groundbreaking work that gives the Beck style tone is by using the thumb and fingers.

Let's look at how he does it. If it feels weird, good, you're doing it right. Practice often and you'll notice it becomes second nature.
