Thread Name: Guitar Picks - What's your favourite?
Subject: RE: Guitar Picks - What's your favourite?
The thread that refused to die--oh, well, some pick content: My favorite flat pick is Martin medium. The Martins, available in light, medium, and heavy--as are most, have effective built-in textured grips, concave on the thumb side, flat on the finger side. Very easy to control. Usually hard to find--only one of the many stores I regularly haunt carries them--and not too durable. Our hard-picking lead guitar player broke one in an hour, but they rarely break when I use them. When I couldn't find them for several years, I started putting velcro up under the thumb--this serves a double purpose, getting a good grip, of course, and they stick to the velcro patch I put on the back of the peg heads of my guitars. --seed
