Hi Edward.thanks for the invite ...I use Jim Dunlop Nylon picks ...most of the time I use a. 60 NM but I modify them... by folding the sides and bending the tip..this helps me hit the strings I want not too hard...but at the same time sounds like a finger pick...

Thanks for the invite! When I started learning the guitar, I used a pick. Lately, I've been using my fingers more often. I thought it would be useful to try both methods. Here are some pix of my picks. The purple one is from my brother. He's played guitar for years, so he has a lot of picks. I found the red Guitar Center pick on the sidewalk, and I picked it up ( remember when people used to pick up pennies because it was supposed to be good luck?). The Dunlop pick with the blue marble pattern is from a set my boyfriend got me. That is the style I use most often.IMG_9482.jpg And here are my Hello Kitty picks. These are rather thin, and I've found I like something a little thicker. But they're cute!IMG_9481.jpg

I use a flat pick usually Dunlop[s I like them kind of thin , I never got used to the thick unbendable but I don't want them swishy like a brush. I have a tendency to break and crack the nail on my middle finger right hand and even put on a fake nail for a while. Felt like Ozzy for a while lol. I have a thumb pick and finger picks (for banjo) but just give me a flat pick and I'll make it work , or matchbook or homemade anything in a triangle. I have even used a quarter with my electrics (but I know that's not allowed here. lol

I have a 76 LP signature...kind of a recording model with a semi-hollow body...a lovely instrument!

Hi Edward, yeah, L6S was a nice geetar, had a lovely smooth sort of tone and the neck was thinner than a standard Les Paul, felt more comfortable. Must admit though I'd always wanted a Les Paul Recording, but they were way out of my price range at the time. :)

Ah Chris, a Gibson L6S, now that was quite a guitar!  Edward
