I know some people that use coins and quarters when they run out of picks, even my brother did when he played guitar. But I don't, I do it a more classic way-with my finger. Sure it hurts like hell, but hey, it's what I got. But my picks are what I mostly use. I am beginning to buy a whole bunch load of Clayton picks, I have them in three sizes: 50mm, 63mm, and 1.26mm. I have four of that last one. I have an alien pick made by EB3, and it's the only one of it's kind that I have. I have a Gibson medium pick that I like to use when I'm picking, something I don't do that often cause I lick strumming, mostly.
I also have these two fuzzy picks that I've had since I've started, and I only use them on my accuistic cause they sound better that way. And last but certainly not least, my Dunlop made 2.0mm pick that I call really cheesily, "Pickbreaker", cause it's so thick that it breaks strings everytime I use it. Out of all my picks beyond the fuzzy ones, it's the one I think that'll survive till the end of my time, if I don't loose it or it gets stolen, I mean.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, everyone uses their own tactics on playing guitar. Not that many but some people still use their fingers to strum the guitar, and some people don't. I don't know if Brian still uses quarters or what have you, but I'm sure he doesn't-common, if you where that rich?
