Watch the Hybrid Picking online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 60 Electric Guitar Techniques You MUST Know

Hybrid picking is a technique that makes use of both the pick and the remaining pick hand fingers. On the surface, it's more versatile than playing with just with a pick. Digging deeper, you'll learn hybrid picking has the same, yet different mojo than fingerpicking as well. At the end of the day, this technique is a very powerful one that will enable you to play things that would be otherwise impossible. Be it oddly accented phrases to wide interval licks to more intricate chordal ideas, hybrid picking opens up in credible options.

Looking for inspiration? Start with Gustavo Assis-Brasil and try to be fair to anyone you listen to after that. Just about every player out there deemed as having great chops employs hybrid picking, but Gustavo is the guy who has everyone's attention – even Tosin Abasi!
