I have a really wierd thing going.. You see, if i play with a pick for more than 5 minutes i get worse playing. Like, im sitting playing the minor pentatonic, and the pic gets warm and clammy, and after a while, i can't do the thing through half as fast as i did when the pick was "newly selected". So i take a new pick, and suddenly im going at full speed again. Whats the deal with that?
#2
sweaty hands? the pick gets sweaty and slippery etc. it happens to me if I play for a long time, you could just wipe it off or switch picks like you said, though 5 minutes is pretty often.

No it doesn't get slippery at all, just warm and clammy. OR if it gets slippery, its so small a fraction that idon't notice it. I think its just because it gets so warm

Does there excist special pics that heat more slowly?

Yea, how can you say that its "clammy", but then deny its slippery? I'd say you should either put a little bit of chalk dust on your fingers that hold the pick, or just buy like 10 picks and have them infront of you ready to change.

edit : clammy : Disagreeably moist, Damp and unpleasant

It could also be sort of a placebo thing were you just think you play badly with a pick after you've used it for a while, and therefore you do. How long have you been playing guitar for?

Lol, that placebo theory seems pretty scary for some reason... I've played for 8 months..

Just because its a little damp doesn't mean its so damp that its slippery..

Ill try some chalk or some other stuff Thanks

What picks do you use?

Lawl, arent you the guy who bought the Gibby? Wheres it at in your gear O.o

Maybe your just allways slow, and the pick has no variance on that!

And aren't you the moron who said that gibson les pauls were the worst guitars ever made? Crawl back to your ****hole.

I use dunlop btw, and while they're chalked when i buy them, it just wears off. Thanks for the advice.

Try sandpapering the surface of your picks.

If that doesn't work, drill 2 small holes in them.

Try Clayton picks. I had the same problem and they helped a lot. Not that it's gone, but they really helped. I prefer the triangle picks because of my big fingers.

Trying finding that one online store that makes picks out of metals. Copper, nickel, silver. I know i've seen it somewhere.

Are you blind? He was ****ing saying i was a crappy guitar player without ever having heard me play. You're the same kind of ****dard as him then?

doesnt he not even have a Gibson LP and has a Epi LP as his sig says


I had a gibson but i returned it on the grounds of not being worth it. But that other idiot (johnny) was insulting me for being an idiot just because i said i loved the les pauls. Before i bought the gibson, that is.

He had a thread about two weeks ago saying how he had just bought a Gibson (I think it was a custom shop) for around 2500$. Than he said how hes been playing for 6 months...

Than, he basicly bashed anyone saying ANYTHING slightly bad about gibson, or the fact he doesnt yet diserve one.


After 5 or so of us asking for soundclips, he gave up and stopped posting.

I can't imagine that being too good for the strings. I use Jim dunlop picks, the really thin (.38-.46) ones have a sort of design/ribbed surface where I hold them and they NEVER fall out of my hands or get slippery.

Just so everyone can see what a moronic dickface you are, i brought the thread back so everyone can read all my posts. The thread is called "gibson les paul classic review", so if anyone cares (No one probably will) you can just read my posts and see where i was "bashing" anyone disagreeing.


Johnyy, seriously, you're ****ed up.
