Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I'm 66 and have been picking for 3 years. Needed something to occupy my time and stave off advancing authritis.

I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
