One of the guitarists in the studio this past week-end was using a Dunlop Big Stubby pick. A 3 mm thick pick. A really, really thick pick.
Being a curious sort of fellow, I decided to go and get a few of these picks. I was playing a live set last night and, with the reckless abandon of youth, I went cold with a different pick.
I am closing in on 50 years of age with over 30 years of playing experience. I found a new trick. A thick pick.
Think speed. The attack of these picks really increased speed. Either that, or there was something sparky in my bottled water.
