We should sponsor a pick-off to settle this question for once and for all (although it's already settled in my mind). Let's get two guys who want to represent the picks / no picks factions and have them play a couple of previously chosen tunes; record and post the results and have members decide which version is cleanest and most attractive to listen to. Any takers?

...nope, not worth the strife that it would cause. Look what happened here: http://www.banjohangout.org/forum/t...PIC_ID=73921... people cannot/will not avoid the flames....

There is someone on the BHO has a signature that goes something like this
"If you aint waring picks then you aint playing bluegrass"
So what do the no pick factions play???

They play old time. Or clawhammer or frailing or drop thumb. But if you want to get technical the three-finger bluegrass style is done with picks.
