Thread Name: Guitar Picks - What's your favourite?
Subject: RE: Guitar Picks - What's your favourite?
This is as good a place as any to (continuously) flaunt my ignorance...and aquire some learnin' in the process. Most of my current to guitar players is as a rhythm keeper. As a non-string player, my question is: why don't they call those flat picks "strummers" instead of "picks" when the guitar player is strumming and not picking? (This is actually a serious wonder I have had, and would appreciate keeping the ridicule to a minimum....)
