I prefer new picks over old picks, I buy a load every few months. I've heard that Tommy Emmanuel used the same pick for 10 years straight at one point. It's all down to preference really :)

Learning Landslide was the first step for me. I broke the pattern down into string numbers:

Practice that enough and you're sorted, you'll soon be able to do that without...

Thumbpicks are bearable, every type of fingerpick I've used has been horrible. None gave me the control or versatility my fingertips do, Alaska piks are the worst by far.

Keith is a great player. Are you talking about the percussive stuff he's doing? That's just him hitting down on the guitar with the side of his hand on every beat.
