    Nice looking guitar DE. I've always liked Schecters. :)

    I've never dealt with zzounds, but I have bought stuff through musician's friend. I would suggest going through them as well...

    I play a little. I have a Seagull acoustic guitar. The only thing I hate about it is that it is french canadian.

    Not me. There was a time when I was pretty decent at sweep picking, but man, does it take a lot of practice. My tastes changed and my soloing style is almost all blues based now. :)

    question for the guitar players...

    as most of you know, i lost my cousin who was like a little brother to me, in November. He was an avid guitar player, as are many members of my family. I want to get custom guitar picks made for my family (his initals on the front, and a flame pattern that he always drew on the back). I want them to be pretty decent quality. What should i get for them? They mostly play electric, i dont know if that makes a difference or not.

    here is the place that i'm looking at:

    Personally, I would like the Delrin ones (GrippX-X). The Celluloid ones seem to chip too easily for me, but it is really a personal preference thing when it comes to guitar picks...That's a really cool idea for a gift BTW...

    thanks, what out the gage?

    I use .73mm. In my experience I have never seen anyone go much thicker than the .88's. I would suggest you try and find out what size they use, because pick thickness becomes a very important part of your technique and at least for me, it is very distracting when I'm not using the size I'm used to...Hope that helps a little...

    I use medium picks... what is that, .73? I also used to use the normal shaped picks... like this:

    But now, I use something like this:

    exclusively. (Started using em just for acoustic, but now I use them for all my guitars)

    Easier to control and last longer.. Usually by the time I'm done with em they are little circles... :p

    GOOD NEWS!!!! About 17 years ago, I decided not to learn how to play a song because I felt it was too complicated... well, last night, I decided to finally figure it out and I did and now I am happy. Not that you care.

    I've always wondered this myself, don't know if you really wanted an answer or not...:p

    According to the Fender site:

    Fender "mediums" are .73mm.

    .60mm's are considered "thin/medium".

    .88mm's are considered "medium/heavy".


    I've always used these...Jim Dunlop Nylon .73mm's...(the gray one)
