Perhaps no part of playing the guitar is more
angst-ridden than choosing a guitar pick. For some reason, people
seem to get very upset with these picks. But some people love
to use picks. It all boils down to the fact that for some people,
picks are comfortable while for others they are not.
Here are common arguments for and against using guitar picks:
• For ? One thing that playing a guitar does to you than
non-musicians might not know is that it can truly be hard on your
fingers. That’s right. It hurts. Those who play with picks
protect their fingers from becoming calloused from strumming on
the guitar for hours at a time.
If you want a simple black pick, then it is simple to find this
at any music supply store. But, if you want a pick that has your
name on one side and the name of your band, along with your logo,
on the other side, you can custom order it. Expect to pay a little
more if you plan to get one designed just for you.
