  2. I had no idea that Jeff Beck did not play with a pick at all. I wonder if he used only his thumb back in the “Yardbirds” days.

      I don’t know exactly when he switched, but a friend of mine, Steve Lynch has one of Jeff’s “Herco” heavy picks that Jeff gave him sometime in the ’70′s. The thing for me about Jeff Beck is he shows that you don’t have to play super fast to be great. You just have to play great and put emotion in your playing.

I readed that in a magazine, under a complete explanation about the requirements of a techniques to hit a string while need to manipulate the volume control and whammy bar at the same time. All of that was developed by Jeff. And that is exactly what you can see in this video! So… I think that version goes on the right direction. A great post, many thanks.
