i was wondering how many people still have their first pick. i've noticed a lot of people on UG who say they do so i thought is it really that special? i don't have my first pick...and i don't even remember what kind it was. if you've only been playing for a month or something don;t respond becasue chances are you do....

my cousin game me my first pick. It's an uber thick Big Stubby, and I never played with it. Instead I drilled a whole in it and put it on a chain, so I can wear it as a necklace

Also, I was at an Yngwie Concert, and he threw a pick out into the crowd, and I went for it, and right as I looked to the ground a guy through a punch at me, yelled "ITS MINE" and gave me a kidney shot. People are crazy for picks.

Mine came with my USED Squier haha. It was like extra heavy and plain green.
#17
My first pick was a medium sized Tortoise Johnson pick that came with my first guitar, some green Johnson Strat copy. I broke it about 2 months of playing it, then I threw it out :/

The longest pick I've kept though was a Epiphone pick that was in my grandparents basment forever, I had it for 8 months, then one day it just disappeared, lot of memories in that pick (I guess...?)

Man now that I think of it, I want my first guitar back :<. I sold it for a a Squier P-Bass... which I just sold for a Maestro 12-string (awesome guitar). Selling my first guitar for a bass that I didn't even use was probably the dumbest decision I ever made

I remember the first batch of picks I had were white, and I rarely see any white picks anymore.

My first one was my Dad's, and it was his first pick too (from 1960something), which I broke in my first hour of playing. I was scared that he'd be pissed, so I hid it in my clothes drawers.

Aaand, yup. It's still there.

I keep losing mine.

I lost my first pick ages ago, but it sucked because it was a really thin and large triangle shaped one. So I don't really care.
#27
yup, still got mine. dont use it to play anymore, but kinda as a reminder of how far ive gotten since my first day. brings my confidence up. ive been playing for 6 months by the way so stilll not that long but hey I think ive gotten far for that long. how many 6 monthers you know can play the Cemetary Gates solo? ( 1st and ending solo ).

So yeah confidence. just to have something to strive for really. plus its just fun as hell
#28
yea i got mine but its all melted

Hell no, I put a pick in the most obvious space and still manage to lose it.

My goal is to have enough picks to where all I have to do is look at the floor when Im ready to play and pick up a pick

the first pick i ever used was about 2 mm thick, inflexible, and impossible for a beginner to use. so no, i said "**** this shit, i need to find me a new one" I didn't. the first 3 months i played bare thumb, and developed quite the callous.

My first pick was a completely black one with the word "Fallacy" on it in Gold, with the F in a sort of mirrored font, I really liked it. Strangely enough I found it in my bathroom, and no one in my family plays guitar o_O

Anyway I lost it.

Even if I did want to keep it, I don't think it would have taken long for it to go missing.
Quote by gflip69
Someone called me on my landline (home phone) and asked me where I was.
#39
No. The first pick I had, I think, was one of those red-blue-white spotted Fender thins. And I don't use thins any more, I use mediums. Not too thin, not too thick.
