The Guitar and the Guitar Picks

DV016_Jpg_Large_110556_web_compThe first time I saw something like classic guitar picks was in college.  It was used by a friend who was very adept in playing the guitar.  The acute isosceles triangle looked like just a piece of triangle material to me and I didn’t know that a guitar pick can be made of nylon, plastic, steel, glass, wood, agate, carbon fiber, and many more.

A guitar pick is gripped usually by a thumb and index.  Other guitarists do it in another manner comfortable to them like using the thumb and middle finger, or using three fingers.

A guitar pick is used to effectively control tone and articulation.  The technique in using it can already be learned online with ‘how to’ instructions.
