Thread Name: Thanks Mudcatters! Now, about thumbpicks
Subject: RE: Thanks Mudcatters! Now, about thumbpicks
The only picks I've ever found which suit me are Alaska picks - you know, the one's which hook on to your nail, and feel like an extension of the real nail. You can file them down to the rigghht length, and wear them on the thumb as well as the fingers. It's like having extra tough nails, but the right length, and with a spare in your pocket for when the nail breaks.......

Except that Alaska picks are made of such crappy fragile plastic that they keep breaking, and they feel all tacky and scratchy.

Now if only I could find some with the same basic design, but made in some decent material...
