People have been using picks for thousands of years, likely since the creation of the first stringed instrument. The guitar pick you ultimately decide to use has great bearing on the sound your instrument will produce. Have a look around, get a feel for what you like and get ready to set out on your next musical adventure. Tony D’Andrea was one of the first people to use celluloid to produce guitar picks beginning in the early 1900’s. He discovered that small pieces of celluloid punched out with dyes were a fabulous choice for plucking stringed instruments. This made way for the modern guitar pick. Today, we see an assortment of different sizes, shapes, colors and constructions, giving musicians a ton of options when it comes to selecting the perfect pick. Seeing that you can find a guitar pick made of almost anything, there are a few things to look for before making your purchase. A good grip is important. Metal picks give you a firm, “sticky” grip even through sweaty jam sessions. A lighter, nylon pick tends to give you less of a finger hold but often has a raised grip to combat the natural slip of the material. How the pick hits the string is also something to consider. If you like more slip when hitting the strings, choose a nylon or metal pick, but if you want more control while strumming you should take a closer look at a wooden pick. The thickness of a guitar pick rounds out the list of things to look for when deciding which pick is best for you. Thin picks that are less than .68mm, are very flexible and produce a light, airy sound. Their pliable construction makes them a great choice for acoustic players that do a lot of strumming. Medium picks (.69mm to 1 mm) produce a slightly heavier sound and are ideal for precision picking. Heavy picks are the weapon of choice for metal guitarists and are perfect for playing technically complex solos and producing a darker, denser sound. These picks are typically sized between 1 and 1.5mm. In the end, it’s important to try out a few different picks to see which ones are right for you. Maybe you like a specific color, shape or brand. Take some time to really listen to the sound each one produces so you can make the right decision on which pick you want to use to play your tunes.
