Hiya

I finaly decided what to buy so i got this honey yesterday:

http://vividguitars.com/stefani.html

Youll might think its abit wank but haha you should really feel it irl, it's not what you think ;)

However, now when I've picked up guitar playing again for real i've found some issues... !

Well you know (those who plays the fast parts of a melody, solo for example) how do you do to not like slip on the plektrum, usaly my fingers ends to be so close to the guitar strings after awhile that i gotta take a 1.5 sec break to put it back...wich of course doesnt sound relly kwl :P.

My fingers gets pretty sweathy while playing so mabye there's something against that? like "lime powder" (calcium or whatever its spelled in english:P ) ? (kalk in swedish)
Well !
Its a common problem.. grab your pic better, or buy a new pic that has been covered in magnesium.

Just keep practising the problems will go away ^_^

There's always those pics with the molded "grips," too.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Lol. Which ones did you try? Some are made with the tip of the plectrum thinner than the grip part.

FELT PICS FTW

If you get the opportunity, I suggest trying Pickboy pics. They're interesting to hold, to say the least.  :)
