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

I'm aware that some purists believe that picks should not be used.
There was a thread not so long ago where someone expressed dismay that they knew someone who played a Martin with picks! As if it was a crime.

I suppose it all depends what sort of style you're playing and how you want it to sound.

Lonnie Johnson almost certainly did to get that clear ringing to his playing.

I have cogitated long and often on this subject and go through phases where i use picks then i'm anti them, do others have this quandry?
