Hi Jed,

I'm out of town and just had a chance to get online for a few minutes ... my laptop battery is about dead. Thanks for your kind comments.

I'm pleased that you learned Boys & Girls ... it always brings back fond memories of Quinn & Jennifer as little children.

Keep with the crosspicking, it's a very useful technique.

Take care.

Dudley

Jed - Yes, my alter ego. A gift from someone who recognized my true cartoonish guitar skills.

I use Wegen 140 large triangle picks, and the D'addario J17 strings. Usually in the studio, I use tortoise shell picks.

In answer to the pick... i have no idea what kind I use. Somebody gave me one at a festival several years back, and i havent been able to put it down. Its rounded on all three sides... if that helps to ID it...

Well, i had planned on going to winfield all year... practiced like a madman... tore the callouses off my fingers.... you know.... but stuff recently came up, and i cant go. At least not this year.

I play a Collings D-1. I just got it eight months ago. Oh, and fly-by is one of my pieces... I just wrote that a couple weeks ago.

good picking! Talk soon, i hope?

You going to Winfield?

...no holes... yeah, that makes sense.. the person who gave it to me was a mando player

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

ya, you're on to me... although it doesn't take much :)

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.

p.s. Be careful playing in the middle of the road! ;-)
