UWG,  I have heard of those zookies but never seen any near me.  I'll have to check them out as I like the idea of hitting the lower strings at that angle.

In the thumb pick  area, has anybody seen a Zookies? They look like a white Duncan except the tip has a twist that causes it to strike the string flat. They come in three degrees of bend and two sizes, large and medium. At least I've not seen a small. Only one place in East TN that I have found them.

Hi Tim: I'd like to see a picture of your modified pick. At first I imagined  the tip being bent at a hard angle (90) but that didn't make sense as it would grab the string and not pluck it.

Hi Edward.thanks for the invite ...I use Jim Dunlop Nylon picks ...most of the time I use a. 60 NM but I modify them... by folding the sides and bending the tip..this helps me hit the strings I want not too hard...but at the same time sounds like a finger pick...
