    Hey guys, I just did this vid, that has been asked for:


    What tonal qualities can we achieve with a pick, and where can we use them?

    What musics can we use a pick with?

    Discussing and covering using a pick with harmonics/metal/funk.

    Covering basic pick technique. Downstrokes and upstrokes. Mutes.

    For beginners or people interested in playing with a pick. No need for flames.

    Will ellaborate on anything if people ask:) Hope it helps.

    I'll have to check that out. I've had a pick for a while, but tend to shy away from it in favor of the more comfortable and familiar fingers. That, and I have no idea how to properly use one and don't want to form bad habits >_>
