Has anyone picked with a 25 cent piece?


#1

I watched my Nephews cousin pick with a quarter one evening and was mesmerized that he could do it so well. never missed a note on black mountain rag . Any one else out there that does that ?

Yep. I don’t get a tone I like very much with it, but it works ok if I don’t have anything else and need a pick.

I wonder if there are a group of quarter-pickers who think the “pre-war” quarters sound soooo much better than the new ones?

  I like the silver ones with less copper they seem to bring out the tones better anything back before 1944 would work for me LOL . http://www.smileycons.com/img/emotions/227.gif

A little brighter tone, huh Welder? :laughing:

I use one occasionally when I’m picking a slow fiddle tune with a lot of quarter notes, in 3/4 time of course!

I actually just tried using a 25 cent piece and the volume dropped scale of one to ten , regular pick equals ten it dropped to a 3 and the tone was almost none existent . maybe my attack I just maybe need to attack it more violently , slam it cram it what ever . a dime might work better lets see now no dimes here so I used a five cent piece cuz I can not spell nickel oh well not much change . MMMMM?? wonder how a soldering iron might sound .

yes I am wasting my time and yours trying to be funny . LOL Have a nice day all who read these words and to those who don’t, have a nice day any how. Its gonna be a great day .
