Is the intro to this song fingerpicked or played using a pick? My boy wants me to learn how to play it (the Limp Bizkit version), so I am trying to figure out which way would be easier to do. I have zero experience fingerpicking, but if it will be easier to learn that way, then I might try it.

I fingerpick it, but I am doing the Who's version(the original).

Townshend uses a pick when playing live, and the recording sounds like he's using a pick too, so I'd try it that way. Also I can't imagine Limp Bizkit playing it fingerpicked. Just try both ways and see which you like better

Well, if you can't make it, stay hard, stay hungry, stay alive, if you can, and meet me in a dream of this hard land.

I play it with a pick, I find anything played with the pick easier, guess its just a matter of preferance.
