Thread Name: Fingerpicks???
Subject: RE: Fingerpicks???
Unfortunately most fingerpicks out there are pretty similar. I've bought all sorts of different brands but there's not much different about how they work...except for Alaska picks. They're plastic and, instead of coming up from the base of fingertip (like banjo picks), they extend out from the fingernail itself...or whats left of it. My wife plays with them but I'm more used to the more conventional sort of fingerpicks. For what it's worth, it doesn't take that long to get used to them and they (I'm talking about the metal banjo-style here)can really help your volumn on stage. Actually, playing without them seems a little unnatural to me these days. Good luck however you do it.
