Is playing without pick consider a "correct" way to play? I feel it more comfortable playing without playing pick. Anyway do not get me wrong, I am not playing with my 4 fingers aka spanish style, I am playing it with the position of holding pick but without holding and pick and pluck strings with my 1st finger. Is there any famous artist that play that way? What is the downside of this? Oh yeah one more thing, I got very short nails so its literally impossible to "alternate pick" without the usage of pick.
