Subject: RE: Thanks Mudcatters! Now, about thumbpicks
Tony, this is a little off of the beatin' path from what you and the others describe here, but have you ever tried Herco's? They look like a flat pick, but with a round insert that fits over your thumb. Once you get used to them (about a 1/2 hour of playing) you can switch effortlessly from fingerpicking to flatpicking, and back and forth...I use them from time to time, depending on my mood and what I'm playing..but also use thin Nationals as well. Most major stores carry the Herco's...You might want to check them out just to formulate an informed opinion.
