#1: using a plectrum

Posted on 2006-06-02 15:27:20 by Mu Major

Here's a thought

A very good friend of mine ,who's a fantastic player by the way, started
some guitar classes at a local youth club. It later became called the 896
guitar project. It's a drop-in place for people to hang out and play. He
once gave a lesson/workshop during which he produced a pick/plectrum held
it up and said,"Guys this is your worse enemy." Do you think he had a point
?

Can't say about him, since you provided absolutely no information about
what he had to say.

Your post, however, is completely without point.

If you want a discussion, you have to provide something to discuss, not
empty assertions.

I think the point between his ears might be his worst enemy.

Depends if it was a Triangle Pick, in that case it had 3 Points!

No had an assertion. I assume he followed that with some supportive
information? Or was it a really short lesson?

There are many things that one can do on a guitar that can only be done
with the fingers. Likewise there is some playing approaches that can't
be easily done without a pick.

Back in the 70's I took some tenor sax lessons from a very well known
player. One day we were discussing the merits of hard reeds vs soft
reeds. He took his off his mouthpiece, and holding it up said &quot;Mike,
regardless of how hard or soft it is, these suckers are your worst
enemy.&quot;

Okay, I get it. In both cases these are the things that stand between
you and the production of music.

Okay, now back to chord forms...

Yeah, I think that may have been his point. Like the plectrum is your
first, most difficult, and crucial hurdle. I started playing fingerstyle
and it took me forever to master the pick, but now I love using it. I
enjoy using various picks, string types and guages, and I marvel at
their different qualities.

Picks are like women. You can't live with 'em and you can't live
without 'em.

So *that's* why I prefer the ones with round curved tips rather than
pointed.
