A friend of mine, Dustin, mailed me some guitar picks to try out. Most of them were Swiss picks. Didn't do anything for me. Another was an XL Jazz III pick. Kind of liked that one, but still nothing like the 6mm Gravity Pick. Also a Dunlop Ultex Sharp. HATED IT INSTANTLY. Yuck!
Then, I went on to practice a string skipping (kind of) riff that finishes off my song Juggernaut.
After having tested out several new picks, this guitar log shows some metronome tests for the new favorite picks.
Eventually, the 6mm Gravity Pick won out.
This is guitar log ( #glog ) numero uno!
I kicked things off by testing out various guitar picks in search of a replacement to the Sik Piks I've been using exclusively for about 4 years straight.
The 6 mm Gravity Pick turned out to be my favorite. I find the 3 mm Dunlop Primetone pick to be my favorite on the acoustic.
This video is full of noodling and riffing to really give these picks a solid test.
What kind of guitar practice does it take to see real results?
The Mile High Shred guitar log are video logs that show how I practice, what I practice, etc.
These videos back up the things I tell students to do when practicing, and gives you a direct look at how improving your speed and accuracy is done.
Some videos are just documenting my fudging around. Gotta have SOME fun!
