My son gave me a Blue Chip geetar pic for Christmas. He has one and I do admit that they do provide a great tone to his mandolin. And now that I have one, I say the same thing about the geetar one. It is a lot thicker that I am used to playing with and I have a tendency to miss a string or two when pickin. I am not used to playing with a stiff pic like this.
I can tell that it is going to take some time to get used too. Its very hard to break 40 years of muscle memory using a thin pic.
I do like the tone it lets the guitar offer but is very different moving around the strings.
The gift was a surprise to me as I would have never thought he would have given me a pic. LOL our first show next year is February and I best get busy learning how to play with this thing because he will be looking for it. He calls me daily and saks if I am using it. He also told me it felt different to him when he first started using one.
Its not the shape or size, it’s the thickness that is the big difference to me. Its like I have to move around the strings rather than going straight through…I guess that how I would describe it.
But all in all, I do like the pic and will continue to try and master this dang thing
