Hey Jed, Thanks for the welcome. I mainly use a Bluegrass 1.0 white w/ holes. I have also used the 1.2, but went back to the 1.0. Mainly chose it, because it was the closest to the size and shape of my older picks.
BTW, has anyone tried to "rough up" a Wegen to get a better grip? You better have a grinder!
They're tough and last! Art
Thanks for the welcome, Jed. I use either a 1.0 or 1.2 Wegan Bluegrass w/ holes and the speed bevel edge.
As far as roughing them up, I have tried everything short of a dremel tool or a grinder...nothing worked. I did try some gorilla snot last year and one time I either used too much or didn't play very long after I used it, because some of it dried on the pick. Now it feels "roughed up" w/ ridges and craters and is definitely not as slick. Sometimes, that's my favorite pick. I may experiment on a couple more and see how it turns out. Art
Hi Jed, I'm using the Wegen "Bluegrass" pick most of the time, though I've got a "Gypsyjazz" model and a "FatTone" I'll break out depending on the sound/attack I'm going for, or the guitar/style I'm playing.
Thank you for the quick responce there Bud, I'll try e-mailing Rick 1st , if no luck I'll get the ph# fr you. I was going to ask him about the capo he was using and if it works with a Martin D-28 due to the "diamond" at the base of the tuning head. Again, thank you.
Hey Jed..thanks for the info. I have some friends that can do that, but its good to know Melvin could do that too. Best of luck with your picking. Have your heard of Jake Jolliff? A great mando player. I've played with him in a gospel band serveral years ago and now he's at Berklee in Boston. Look him up on Youtube.
