Tony,
I saw you for a split second at Merlefest when they pulled your number for the contest. 5 minutes later I got an emergency call and had to go back to Florida. I trust all is well,

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"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…"
