I took a whole Saturday out of my life last year to make a few dozen credit card picks. I went over my friends house on Sunday with a few of them, and he used one. I found it ok, but he found them too flimsy. I never used them again. Opinions?

Oh, finish the guitar, then spill whiskey and coffee on it. Lock in dank basement for several years, enjoy.

don't forget feces. i always get that on my axe somehow.
They get the job done, but I would rather use a proper pick. However if I'm desperate I'll use them.

Um...credit card picks? Is that as obvious as it's supposed to be or is there something I'm missing?

Either way....I prefer to use pennies if I'm desperate.

I have used bread ties when really in a pickle and was desperate to get some jamming in at home and lost all my picks. Seemed to get the job done and was a little harder than credit cards, I would assume. I generally use 1mm or higher though as I like really thick picks.
