I'm playing my school's Battle of the Bands pretty soon and I'd like a good place on my guitar (no mic stand holders) to put spare picks in case I drop one/ throw some to the audience. I have one of those Dunlop pick holders but I use Tortex Jazz now and they don't fit in there very well. I know Steve Vai has some method for putting them on the side of his headstock, does anyone know how?

Tape some of them to your guitar.

You can usually stick them into the part of a mic stand where one part slides out of the other.

if there's a knob on top of your guitar, wedge one under that. it's what I do with my acoustic, but you probably use an electric.

Get creative with the strap!

if you have a tune-o-matic bridge like on a LP

put some inbetween the strings that are between the bridge and the tail-stop

or simply tape some to the edge of your guitar with them sticking out

they might look kinda dumb but you dont wanna have to finger pick the rest of a song a sound stupid in front of the whole school do you

(make eye contact with hot chicks they might talk to you after
#14
dont tape em straight down to your guitar


on the edge with it sticking out past the guitar

make the area around the pick kinda loose cuz you dont wanna rip the tape off with the pick that would suck

test it to see if its good

most likely u should b able to yank em out fast enough
you shouldnt have to worry if you dont get nervous and you have good grippy picks
#15
pocket for sure. if your strings lock, then put between the strings on the headstock. easy to grab.
#16
only tape about 1/3 of the pick and use weak scotch tape, before you ruin the finish on your guitar.

dont drop your pick and dont throw them into the audience, your not famous


Me and the guitarist did that during our 8th Grade Talent Show Performance.

A girl who caught one came up to me later that day and said: "You Threw this at me and it like, Hit me.. So here you go."


Put some picks everywhere! Put some in between the mic and micstand, in your pocket, Under your pickguard, headstock..

My Personal favorite is to have some on top of my amp.

Step 1) Get wristband
Step 2) Put picks under wristband.

Not only does your hand not sweat, but you have the best pickholder around.

If you use a mic, get one of those pickholder thingies that you can attach to the mic stand.

If you don't, get one of those Wedge clip things that you put on in between the strings on the headstock that hold picks. Work wonders.

That's what I do.

Or just have a music stand sitting next to you, and put a bunch of picks on the lip of it.

Quote by bludwolfrocks
ram 3 or 4 of them under the pick guard, like me!

i used to do that

either do that or use double sided tape which can be put on the headstock, edge of the body or on your strap or even a mic stand
#28
What Vai uses is a little attachment on his head that he can slide his pick in, but I don't know what to search for or what it is called. It just attaches to the side of the head of the guitar.

People ASKED me to throw picks into the crowd at a battle of the bands at my school when I was a sophmore


You never know when you might need to throw somebody a pick
#31
Just put a bit of double sided sticky tape on your headstock. And then stick they straight on to that

Use blue-tac not sticky tape.. It's easier, and doesn't ruin your finish.. I usually tape stick my pics on the back of the headstock or near the pickguard

I put em either in my pickguard(just under should I say)

OR, if its a break simply slip it over the low E, and under the A and D strings, first fret. It'll stay there forever unless you take it out.
#39
Tape 'em to your strap. It's easier to reach than your headstock. Doesn't look as flashy though.
