Slippery pick..

When playing for a long time I notice my pick slippering from my grip ...
Pebber I noticed that you use a pick with a grip pad if you will..
I can't find those picks here in Toronto ...
If I send you the money would you ship some of those picks?
Or is it just my fingers that are week??
Also have you guys tried the "V pick "?
Look it up on YouTube Vpick..
We also don't have those here in Toronto .

I used to have the same problem man. For me, the problem was solved when I tried thinking about where the pick was relative to the string and NOT thinking about HOW I was holding the pick.

I saw this video where John McLaughlin hacks his jazz picks with a Swiss Army Knife.

If a pick is made of different material a tool like a dremel wheel might do the trick!

Cheers!

I just got a pm from dansimonin telling me that Pebber uses Dana picks and I can buy them at a store outside Toronto .
He reminded me to brace my index finger with my Midle finger that would help as well...
Thanks for the video !!!

A lot of guys famous guys use this jazz III pick.
The problem that I want to resolve is the grip problem and I think that the Dava pick deliveres it very well, specially the gel one.
But as far as sound quality I think that the Vpick is the best option ..
Check out a video on YouTube Vpick review..
I'm getting the Dava pick this week!!!!

Buy picks online. Save that 80 minute round-trip for practice time!

I have a cigarette ashtray filled with just about every guitar pick made. I mostly look for tone, but I agree slippage can be a problem. My current personal favorite for the past couple years has been the Pickboy Pos-a-grip jazz 1.5mm

It's a little heavy...not as light as a jazz III or a Dava, but the tone is superb.

Just my opinion. Give them a try and see if you like them.
