Thread Name: Thumbpick help
Subject: RE: Thumbpick help

I'm for the hot water treatment for sizing thumb picks, but I also suggest — especially if you're new to using them — that you find a fine file or emory board and hone the pick on it. I like to take off about 1/8 inch to get the point very close to my thumb. Gives much better control, especially if you're using bare fingers or nails for the other strings.
