Ive seen some people do some cool stuff by not strumming or picking but just hitting the strings with there fingers, its kind of hard to describe so I included a link where someone is doing it. When i try this technique i get nothing, anyone have any tips of how to do it. thanks, and it starts at 1 minute in the video.

That is a technique called tapping, it's easier than it looks like, just practice hitting your strings hard and pulling off without muting them.

its just tapping. its very simple, very easy, not all that impressive in my opinion. the reason you cant get it to work (probably) is that in the video, they are playing with their amps cranked. while volume isnt really an issue, this allows you to hear everything. try turning your amp up, put some dirt on it.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

if you think like that, then picking must be extremely overused.

No, certain tapping licks are overused. Just as many licks using different techniques are overused. There are many artists who tap tastefully, and create unique licks.
