    Hellmut Hattler (Kraan, Tab Two, solo) has the coolest picking style I know.

    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?

    ...c'mon, you guys mentioned Kaye; how 'bout Joe?

    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!
