I have a pick holder mounted behind the headstock of my bass, no issues.

In part, my pick choice is informed by what shows up well when I drop it on the floor.

But picks are a consumable, so I expect to go through them quickly when I play a lot.

Maybe guitarists should stop being so poor, then losing picks wouldn't be an issue. Cheap bastards.

Maybe if bass players cared enough about their art, they would play a proper instrument.

I just downtune my lowest string for RIM wubz.

It's not a proper instrument unless you can have a pornhub tab open on it.

I got one of those wedgie pick holder things that fits between the strings above the head stock and really started paying attention when someone borrows a pick and making sure they give it back. I haven't lost any since, though they still occasionally get stolen when I let somebody borrow one.

I also started keeping the fingernails on my right hand a little longer a few years ago and over that time I've slowly started playing fingerstyle more and more til now I'm at the point where I barely use picks anymore except for tremolo galloping sweep picking pinch harmonic type stuff, and I can do all that with my pointer fingernail now anyway unless it's really fast.

Other than getting used to it the main downside to going the fingerstyle route is it makes tapping with more than one finger almost impossible, but I never gave a shit about tapping anyway, so whatever.


also, what the hell's up with this? I thought advertising was against the rules. I know the mods have been getting more relaxed lately, and I don't really care about stuff like this. just wondering.

I was playing once, and my pick broke it was a sad sad sad day.

Do any of you guys MAKE your own picks? I saw some videos showing how to make them from old CDs.

Tried it multiple times, unless you got some seriously high demands for pick shape/thickness/stiffness and ETC it is an absolutely pointless thing to do.

I made a few different ones out of various materials several years ago. They turned out ok, but I never liked them as much as other picks that I'd bought.

Just get a thing of Altoids, clear out all the mints, and use that to keep your picks in.

I've had the same one for 5 or 6 years, and still have 26 of the 32 picks that came in a bulk pack I bought around that time.

pick something up in my room.

50/50 chance there's a pick under there.

if not, grab a coin or use a corner of a debit/credit/gift card

Of course reddit comments aren't interesting enough for posting butts though.



Haha but I'll give it to reddit their comments are more abrasive than anything I've encountered here!

You guys really need to step up your game...
