    You arent going to get many friendly responses with that thread title.

    You can hold the pick between your middle/ring/pinky fingers whilst slapping.

    I saw a clip awhile ago of Jaquo III-X playing by slapping with his thumb and using a pick held between two of his fingers. Pretty cool.
     
  5. Take Dave Schools from Widespread Panic for example. He's a big guy, with HUGE hands on their own, plus his fat on there. So when he plays, he'll use a pick through most of the song, and then when it gets to his solo or whatever, hes actually able to tuck the pick inside the folds of his hands while he slaps/pops, then he pulls it back out and starts playing with it again.

    Your thread title is going to cause a bunch of negative responses. I am closing it before it goes downhill. Next time try to think of a better title, and post it in the correct forum.
