Matt Bellamy of the band Muse often inadvertently gives the middle finger when playing guitar. It’s because he holds his pick with the index finger and thumb, and then the ring and pinkie fingers are curled under, and then the middle one, well… a-hard-days-night-paul-10

So if the two finger salute is more offense how does it differ between the peace sign ?

I could be wrong, but I think the two finger salute(not the Cub Scout saute which is what I thought of when I first read that) is back handed, like in this picture.

And the peace sign is front handed, like Ringo Starr is demonstrating in this picture.

You are correct. The two-fingered salute shows the back of the hand, whilst the peace sign shows the palm.

 

Personally, I would have used this photo to demonstrate the former ahdn_george_06

Considering I didn’t know really what the two finger salute was till I googled it, this probably wouldn’t have come to mind since I didn’t realize that’s what he was doing the first time I saw it.  This gives this picture a whole new meaning for me.

I was just having a laugh, don’t worry. I probably wouldn’t have noticed if I hadn’t known, either. What I didn’t see before, is that George actually wrote something on that photo. I wonder which words were meant to go on the dots… a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

I also have seen the two finger salute with the fingers together or is that something else?

It’s like this, it’s the cub scout salute.

It’s definitely a problem when one is holding a guitar pick. I once caught myself about to flip off some of my bandmates at practise… a-hard-days-night-paul-10

It would be really funny if it turned out he still wasn’t intentionally doing it.
