Tommy Tedesco, LA studio great and member of the Wrecking Crew, famously played all of his classical guitar pieces with a pick. Wrote about it in his column in Guitar Player magazine. Famous also for one time the conductor kept asking him to play different instruments that a studio guitar player was expected to have on hand - called for balalaika, mandolin, etc, Tommy ducked down under the divider, resurfaced, and played the new instrument. Totally different sounds. The guy next to him cracked up, because all Tommy had was a classical guitar...
