What do you do?

Actually I do this too. A big canine indent goes a long way.

i know someone who hole punches the middle of his pick, which kinda acts like a lock when he grips it. it actually works pretty well
#7
sometimes i use gaffers tape and wrap it around the pick and my thumb

Hole punch in the center, works for me. Also I use pointless picks. http://www.pointlesspicks.com/

EDIT: My dad emailed the guy who invented those awhile back about them and he sent us a trial pack for free. They are surprisingly useful.

I may try this too...

A pertty good solution to this is prolly DAVA picks, they wrap the top of the picks in rubber. or you could just dip your normal pick in tar.


Tar???? Near my beloved one????

Black


Sticky


tar?????

nothing... I've slashed picks before though and sharkskin would work really well. Mediaeval knights had the handles of swords covered in sharkskin to improve the grip.

I need really pointy ones for pinch harmonics, those ones would suck for me.

my dunlop big stubbies are chewed because the grip they provide simply does not work and i drop them a lot otherwise, which is a shame because they otherwise provide the feel and the attack that i like. i was once in a sound check, i dropped the stubby i was using, it bounced on the floor, bounced again and sprung back towards me and i caught it and continued to play as if nothing happened... and nobody saw it dammit. i wish that had happened at the gig
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
#22
just buy Dunlop Tortex.
it worked for me. And I sweat pretty easily from my hands. I just don't like the feel of the Nylons or Jazz.

Edit: ^it sprung back to you? how close were you to the ground for that to happen?

... crab stance?

I don't need to, I have V-picks, they're grippy by themselves.

I love my V-picks.
Wait.

Chewing, duct tape, sanding, gluing sand onto them. Then I realized I got the best grip without doing anything to the pick...

the stubbies are actually quite bouncy against a stone floor for some reason. i was surprised it bounced that high the first time, let alone the second. afterwards i delibirately dropped one and it bounced so many times.

I barely ever sweat, even under exertion, so the embossed logos on most picks I use have always sufficed for a grip.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.
#28
I just put it in my mouth before playing and when i take it out it stays in place because of the saliva, its sticky and stays well. Disgusting but thats how it is.
