    Hellmut Hattler (Kraan, Tab Two, solo) has the coolest picking style I know.
     
  8. I totally agree with you!
    I think he is known outside of germany!?

    I agree, but Chris Squire is my favorite!
     
  10. Scott Thunes is the one I first come to think of. Did Patrick O'Hearn play with a pick too?

    Don't know about O'Hearn(I do dig that tone on "Give"...whatever he's using). ;)

    Hmmm....I'll throw one in on my own thread. How about Leon Wilkerson? Not a complicated style, but solid nonetheless!
