Thanks Texas, The reason I mention it is because I was looking at a site about Earl and it showed a pic of someones hand wearing 2 metal finger picks and a metal thumb pick so I assumed it was him.

I don't think it would've mattered.....He's Earl Scruggs.

I agree 100% with TKO. On page 18 of EARL SCRUGGS and the 5 string banjo, Earl states: I use a plastic thumb pick and two metal finger picks. A light gauge thumb pick with a point...
