Thread Name: Revolutionary Pick Thinking
Subject: RE: Revolutionary Pick Thinking
I've never had to modify a Fred Kelly pick except to touch up the edge a bit with wet/dry sandpaper, but back in my Dunlop and National days I would cut them down and reshape the point, sometimes even heating them to adjust the tightness of the fit. FKs suit the shape of my thumb and I like the point, but your milage may vary.

FWIW, Chris Proctor (fingerstyle player of note) was the one who turned me on to the Fred Kelly picks, though I was never clear on whether he used them himself. There was a very good display of them at a Proctor workshop once and they sold like crazy.

Peace, Mooh.
