How do i keep them all from getting lost
if i put them in my guitar case they dissapear
if i put them in my mouth for 5 minutes i drop them and they roll under something

ive seen a few pictures where guitarists have attached them to their scratch plates
could anyone tell me how they do this because im sick of spending loads of money on new plectrums for them to get lost
thanks muchly

Double sided tape on the headstock/side of guitar, or wedge it under the scratchplate.

I prefer the first one, but I don't do it anymore.

Get a paper Sting packet and if you have a had case, slide it in the gap between storage bit and neck support, in a soft case, in the front pocket. Also, i always keep on in the change part of my wallet.

Buying a pack of 30 fender mediums and sitting them near where your guitar lives is useful too!

also, just putting them in the strings works. (Do NOT store the guitar for lenthenged time with them in strings)

Get a strip of masking tape, roll it on itself so you have a tube of tape with the sticky side facing outwards. Stick it your guitar and hey presto, sticky strip on your guitar to attach picks to.

How is a pick holder not the cheap option? They are like a dollar. The shop in my town even gave it to me for free...

I keep them on my Computer desk.

A pick holder is like $1, how the hell can you not afford that? Just steal one if you're that strapped for cash.

Ooooh I just remembered something. While I was at University, I got bored of the way I had my room set up, so I took everything out and changed the layout of the furniture. When everything was outside in the hallway for a bit, I found a plethora of guitar picks hiding underneath where the bed was, behind the wardrobe, underneath a pair of shoes I hadn't worn in a year, underneath amps. EVERYWHERE. The strangest part is the turned up in the weirdest places and I had no idea how they got there. So yeah, if you ever fancy changing the layout of your room, do it, because I guarantee you'll find a fair amount of picks hiding in the most unusual of places.

There like socks man, they always seem to disappear. I think players who have them stuck on the body of the guitar are using that sticky tack stuff. Kinda like play-doh but stickier. You can also get a pick holder that has a sticky on the back to atatch it to the back of your headstock and it fits like 10 or 12 picks.

Put it between the first fret and the low E string

The bags you get small change in from the bank are great for keeping picks in... That, or tie a drawstring bag behind the nut, under the strings. Not the best for accessibility, but they wo n't go anywhere...

I keep a few in my wallet.. That way I've always got one on me when I'm out somewhere
