Re: pick advice
I tend to prefer picks in the .50-.60 mm range. If a pick I like tends to turn/spin in my fingers, I usually heat the end of a nail or small screwdriver and burn/melt a few small holes in the grip end of the pick. Most of the time this tends to work pretty well.
"If Einstein hadn't discovered the theory of relativity someone else would have because its a basic science truth. Same for Watson-Crick and DNA. But if Beethoven hadn't written "Moonlight Sonata", no one else would have. If Van Gogh hadn't painted Starry Night, no one else would have."
I don't want to play songs, I want to create songs.
