Thumb Pick Recommendations

  • Hey all!

    I'm sure it's been covered here before but can't find an answer!

    Do you guys have recommendations for thumb picks for alternate bass/travis picking styles? I've been using either my thumb nail or a 'Gnaz Tapping Pick but kind of in the market to try something new.

    Let me know what you guys have found to work well!


  • Hi, me too.
    Tommy emmanuel recommened Jimdunlop. I used it to make alternate bass and it work. But one thing is the straight part of thumpick is too long. It very difficult to play attack and hit string at one time like Emil does.

    I use "Golden Gate" medium thumb picks. They are slightly shorter than the dunlop mediums, and fits my thumb better. I actually file down the tip just a bit on all my thumb picks because I feel that they are too long. /Emil
