Similar experience here. I started as a classical player who transitioned to steel-string fingerstyle. I bought a thumbpick because I liked what Tommy Emmanuel was doing with one, but I just could not come to terms with it. I admire Tommy's ability to switch between bare thumb, thumbpick and flatpick, but I think this mere mortal will stick to being mediocre at just one style, rather than butchering 3.
