GUEST,Stour Delta To use finger picks or not? (21) To use finger picks or not? 04 Dec 03

That is the question. I'm sorry if this topic has previously been done to death, having done a search i couldn't find anything.

Did Robert Johnson use picks? In that famous photo of him he is clearly wearing a thumb pick but you can't see if he also wore finger
Surely to get that clear punchy sound he must have, but were they commercially available or did those old blues players have to make their own?

What are 'catters own opinions on using picks?
