Thread Name: Flatpick problem
Subject: RE: Flatpick problem
You could look upon such scratches and pitting as adding character to your instrument, an expression of your musical personality, they are your personalizing of your instrument. When you pass on folks'll say "Them marks was made by Ol' Les, he was a Great Picker." You could learn to pick more accurately - I mean no disrespect here - but the problem seems to be with your technique. Maybe a bit of work here will re-pay you AND don't be afraid to discard or change those picks for something new. Peace.
