Imagine … the band is grooving … the crowd is cheering … just seconds to go until you will play your famous guitar solo … you know, the one hat just rocks! … And you are losing your pick. Damn!
I guess every gigging guitar player already had that situation (… although the size of the crowd might vary from player to player ). But there is something you can do about it:
Get a guitar plectrum with grip!
There are a couple of them on the market. Here are my favorites:
1.) It’s actually the DIY version: Get a tool and cut some scratches in your plectrum. But be careful! The advantages of this method:
- you can chose your preferred guitar pick
- you can place the scratches exactly where you need them.
2.) maxpick guitar plectrums
Maxpics have a sticky area in the middle (the black area), that give you a nice grip. What I do not like: For me, at least with this regular shape you see above, the black sticky area is a little to far on the top. I would need it a little lower on the pick.
All right, this is just the beginning of this review, don’t worry. But I wanted to put it online alread to try out a couple of things … so come back later to read more
