Thread Name: Alaska finger picks
Subject: RE: Alaska finger picks
Sorry, I posted this on a similar ( wrong ) thread , a brief review as promised on the 14th May above.
Trying to find this original thread, I came across some pictures of the picks, and I must say the ones I received don`t look as fancy as the originals - perhaps the ones I got are made under license in the UK.

Just put 3 picks on - plastic ones.Needed bit of waggling about `cos my nails are in pretty good nick - for once.
Used `em for 15 mins - hardly made any mistakes in 3 types of tunes including a ragtime - bit more practice just to make them feel OK on my fingers and I think they`ll be the best thing to natural nails I`ve ever tried.
They`ve solved the big problem with thumb angle - but as someone said could be a problem with down stokes.
Compared to anything else I`ve tried - these could be a genuine "starter" as it`s the first time in many times of trying that I`ve been able to enthuse about the prospect of playing with finger picks, but, like many ,I wish I had eternal , decent fingernails.
