Back to your querry. couple of posts back, Ric: yes, this is with nil shorter than the tip. I work well for me on electric/light gauge strings, but "meat only" is tough for me on heavier strings, particularly lap steel and dobro. I'm intrigued by OW's nail technique, but I'm ore than a little set in my ways at this point. If it works for you, go for it.

Yeah, this one went way off topic--so, just to get back to the topic--my answer is it doesn't matter--just play a tricone the way that you are comfortable with and the way that sounds best to you. I don't like to use picks at all. I don't have a tricone now--but I have owned them before and I didn't use picks then either, although I have found them to be a little on the masochistic side--they like to be snapped hard and put up wet. . .
