Is your guitar pick slipping through your fingers?

If your guitar pick is slipping in your hands its probably due to you sweating, there are many gripped picks/plectrums out there that claim to solve this issue, many dont, some kinda do but mostly its a waste of time.

Being a pro at sweaty hand picking (LOL) I can tell you I have tried many different options ideas and designs, and as I'm not selling you anything or being paid to tell you what the best option is I may be able to help you solve this issue once and for all.

As ever no company has solved this issue, perhaps its a manufacturing issue, I'm not sure. Follow my steps on this video, give it a try and please send me any of your comments.

Here I bring up the subject of pickup height for your guitar pickups, there is no set rule so I discuss the the good and the bad points of height placement. Remember that every person, pickup and guitar is different so we will all have a different preference but the main rules still apply.

Many people just wind the pickup as near to the guitar strings as possible to get as much gain and treble as possible, although this may work well when practicing the real trick is to get a nice even well rounded sound with more complexity and dynamics in the sound.

Will let you decide, please comment I really want to know what you think.

So I got this sticky guitar nut on my guitar, guitar is an explorer type guitar so is a bit worse case scenario but works great, just a bit of filing to let the strings run through.
