I remember using the flaps of the matches and folding them...Man, that was a long, long time ago...

Yes, bigrin
When I started playing at 15 we used either the plastic bread bag tabs like that or the pieces from my Dad's credit cards when
he cut them up after they expired.

I don't play with a pick very often, but when I do I use these:

I was at a guitar show a while back, and they were passing them
out there. I've ordered some, and really like them.
(Haven't lost a single one.....yet, which is a miracle in itself bowdown)

Hey Duck, usually I use "THOSE" picks on my nose!!!  If I am really aggressive, I can bury the 3rd finger to the 4th knuckle!!!!

The only picks I ever use anymore are the Herco heavy flatpick/thumbpick. Great for hybrid picking!

Unless im casually strumming, I use the side of standard shaped picks as well. Try is its incredibly versatile.

Well, just when I thought I had found the most perfect pick (Planet Waves Suregrips), guess what..... I found another make that really is turning my crank!!!  It is the Dava Grip picks:



They have a softer, quieter sound, ideal for recording when you don't want the harshness or scraping of a pick to come through.

I have tried these for about a week and I really like the feel and comfort.  They could be my new favorite pick!!!

I was looking at Bob Colosi's web site earlier,
has anybody tried the Ivory flatpicks he makes?
If so what do you think of them compared to say a Wegen?

Doesn't the grippy stuff get stuck between the strings?

No the black "grippy stuff" appears to rub off. Only the colored pick material touches the string.
