It’s all about the picks!

For many people playing guitar may seem to be a simply thing to do, but in fact it’s everything but that! Apart from the music theory and techniques, the wannabe guitar player has to choose strings, amps, effects, straps and of course picks!

It’s a common thing for the guitarists to throw the picks to the fans, after the end of some rockin’ song or in the finale, and both Madonna and Monte Pittman have done that! So here are their picks that some very lucky fans were handed!

Madonna, Monte Pittman and Stuart Price signature picks!

Monte Pittman has preferred in the last tours the Tortext (by Dunlop) picks while Madonna almost always plays with her golden nylon one!

It’s the small details that make the difference :) What kind of pick do you have??

    LOVE this post – so many designs! I use picks around that thickness myself :D

    I had forgotten how much fun is to play with new picks until I bought a couple of Dunlops (.71mm) yesterday!

    It’s all in the details ;) and the appropriate “mojo” :p

    I’m dedicated to Jim Dunlop Nylons in .73 and .88 … great grip, great feel, and I swear they make me play a little better… :)
