    Youtube,Hold On, Ian Thomas Band on SCTV about 1:30 in the guy does this sweet little slap lick that seems to allow no time to transition from a flat pick????? anyone ever see how he did that.....

    Sounds to me like he's just yanking on a high string with the middle finger and uses the pick for the low notes. Who knew that dude did that song first? I remembered the skit but I didn't remember he did that song before Santana.
