I've seen a few people use thimbles and this guitar pick that wraps around the finger. But depending on what sound you are looking for you can use anything. A beer bottle would work.

ive rocked out with drumming brushes, there cool cuz theyhave the brush part, and the hard part on the other end, plus you can pull the bushes out as far as you want (to an extent) and then change the sound even more :)

I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
