Thread Name: Finger/Thumb Picks
Subject: RE: Tech: Finger/Thumb Picks
"you have to have long nails for them to sit under" I find they work well enough with quite short nails. People vary, including the way fingernails are set. And I find they work for both up and down strokes, and as a thumb-pick as well.

But most of the time I use a flat pick or fingers, because doing it that way needs less organisation.

But while were about it, does anyone else use one of these - Dunlop Strum Rose Pick They look vicious, but in fact they are handy especially in a noisy session, and you never break a string, no matter how hard you strike them. But I don't think Dunlop make them any more, and not many places have them.
