Don't currently own any dreads, but a dread is a guitar isn't it? So why not fingerpick it? It says right here on my fingerpicking license that dreads are not excluded.

Back in the 60s, it seems that all the folk acts that came to town were toting dreadnought guitars. And so were the native acts, like Jim Kweskin and Tom Rush. There was no ordinance against fingerpicking dreads, so they did.

And once more Don's opinion gets the RP seal of approval....
