Don't know ......but there are different gauge and length of thumb and finger picks. I would think its personal preference whether you're a guitar or banjo player. My brother uses a thumb pick and one finger pick to play electric guitar. He started doing that about 4 or 5 years ago......he is a touring musician.

You can use anything for anything (Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top uses a freakin' Mexican peso) - but - some banjo players use metal picks. I don't know of too many guitarists who do...but who cares. Try it out.

Well, I have regular picks that I love, but I just wanted to see if thumb picks came in different thicknesses. This metal banjo pick idea sounds interesting. I may buy one. I just don't like the sound I get from the really thick plastic thumb pick I have.
