Well it happened my pic fell inside my acoustic and it wont come out. For an acoustic player this is torture.

I can easily get a pick out of my aechtop and the holes are way smaller than an acoustic. I may never know why it's so damned difficult to get one out of an acoustic.

ok. this is important. STAY CALM! gently tip your guitar upside down, and wait for the little bugger to jump out.

they always do, belive me.

Get it in the middle, loosen a string or two, push your hand in, put your fingers over top of it, flip your guitar upside down and grab it. That's what I do.

^haha my friend once put a whole bunch of dimes in my reaaaally crappy acoustic. It took him like 10 minutes to get them all out. It was actually pretty funny. Just loosen the strings and reach in to get them.

haha

i once dropped my pick in my dad's acoustic on purpose just to see if i could get it out. that was a beautiful guitar. it's a shame he took it with him when he moved. he probably doesn't even play it.
#9
I can get them out. I have a super secret strategy.

And I think havign someone take a dump in your sondhole is a bit worse than a pick.
haha

My friend actually keeps her plectrum inside the guitar.

Then spends ages getting it out everytime she plays.

No. No it's not. Not even close. At most it should take a minute or two to get out. And an acoustic player's worst fear is something more along the lines of someone or something falling on it.


Dumbass.

just move it around until you can see the pic through the hole, then flip it over really fast and it will fall right out. I have to do it from time to time
#14
get a pen, stick some blue tac or gum on the pen then get it out with that, problem solved
#15
Just shake it like a erm....yeah, it'll drop the goods soon enough.

lol, one of my friend's was trying out this 3000 dollar accoustic guitar at a store once and he dropped his dorrito pick in the hole (you know the triangle pick that kinda looks like a dorrito?). Anyway, that was the only dorrito pick he had and that music store didn't sell any of them, it was his favorite too.

this is the fastest way to get a pic out. Might take you some practice to get the right amount of velocity in the spin, but it has the same effect on a pic that a rollercoaster has on the human body. the force of the spin will cause the pic to stick to the bottom of the guitar. Once you stop, gravity will kick in and the pic will magically fall right out.

It's even worse when your pick falls behind your pickgaurd on a strat style guitar, and you reach ion there to get it and get zapped because you forgot to unplug it..

Huh? you shouldn't be able to just reach behind your pickguard. How is it even loose enough for it to fall in there?

my worse fear just happened. I just sliced my index finger while making breakfast and now I wont be able to play for a good two weeks or more.

I slam'd my fingers in my car door a few weeks ago and my first thought was "please god dont let my fingers be fucked''. They came out alright but theres still blood under my finger nails and I couldnt play for a few days.

If I was John Petrucci or something like that I'd get hand & finger insurance.

LOL that was a great one. To be honest it is what I had to do. It was one of those picks that just wanted to stay in the guitar. I tried to be nice I tried to be calm in the end I shook the hell out of it and it finally came out.

Stick blu-tac onto a pencil or pen. You can now get the pick by fishing around in your acoustic for a while.
