Face it, some styles of music just HAVE to be played with a pick. I dont like it any more than you. But what if there is no pick to be found? Have you ever carved your own picks? Personally I found that bag clips from hot dog/hammburger bun bags work great, or even pogs. Remember pogs? their back... in Alf form. -Edit-oh yeah, old school ID's work great (or expired credit cards, but I dont have any) 10 points to who can tell me what cartoon this is from.
