strumming
« on: October 13, 2015, 03:14:22 PM »
I am having trouble strumming lately might be the plectrums I use or maybe its depends on how I am feeling iv tried not using them but it doesn't work. I find thin ones are best for me I struggle to keep hold of heavy ones I need new hands.

Hi,
For acoustic ,I prefer  a thinner pick but again it?s all down to personnel preference.
The picks I have been using lately are called Cactus Guitar Picks, they have a raised very grippe part and really stops pick turning ,feels a bit like shark skin !

Have a look at  Cactus Guitar Picks     http://www.greatbigmusic.com/

Can't help feeling that a Thumb Pick could be the perfect solution for you. ;)
