So, there is definitely a black hole in my room, or a gnome of some sort stealing my picks. I'll put it down in a place, and walk away, and then when I return it's nowhere to be found. I turn my room upside down looking for it, and then look in the spot that I originally laid it down, and there it is, mocking me. I've noticed this with many of my left socks as well.

Gnome's my man. My house is the same. Socks and picks mainly.

I've had 12 'big stubby' picks go missing in 2 months. To be fair, my desk is filthy.
NOPE.
#7

The only picks they leave alone are the ones I hate. They all sit in the exact same location. I come back and my favorite picks are gone and those big ****ty pizza slice ones and my worn out ones are all that is sitting there.

Am I really the only guitarist without this problem?


Hrm. Sounds like something a pick gnome would say
#14
God I ****ing hate that.

I lose picks all the time.

I've lost like 100 picks in my room.

I find them one of these days...

After I kill those damn gnomes....

We'll choke on our vomit and that will be the end

Happens to me too, but I find that once your down to about 2 or 3 picks, you start to be more careful.

Solution: have less picks.

I once lost a pick in the search bar.


The search bar is a pick gnome in disguise.

Haven't you heard?! There are pick and left sock gnomes on the loose!

I hate it when you drop one and watch it hit the ground, then you look away for a second to set your guitar down, turn back to go get it, and its gone. .. .

What? I've been using the same 3 picks for at least a year. (a Jazz III a friend had lost in my couch, a pick from my stepbrother's old band, and a purple tortex I found in the street.

Around my house they only target Jazz III's and these really nice acoustic picks I have. Both of which are hard to find around here.

The only choice I have is to kill my family, in case they are secret pick gnomes.

Also, I use Altoid tins most of the time. They are the best for holding picks and what-not.

I have a pick neckless. But sometimes I put my pick in the holder and it dissapears after awile. Only happens to me every now and then though. Sometimes I actualy sleep play. One time my mom came into my room after I went to sleep and found me playing random notes . Mabe then the gnomes steal it

Lose 'em all the time. I by them regularly though, but carry a bat with me just in case...

EDIT: I keep one around me neck (I mean a pick). I also keep one on my guitar strings, and yet they still vanish... I hate gnomes
