You’ll want to choose a guitar pick that you feel comfortable with. There are so many different kinds out there that I suggest you try a few different ones and see which one you like best.
I personally use the Dunlop Gator Grips 2.0 as I like the thickness and the non-flexibility of them. They just feel comfortable in my hand.
I recently bough the Ernie Ball Prodigy Guitar Picks 2.0 and have been working with those a bit. They are a bit more pointed than the Gator Grips, which can help with fast picking.
Learning an instrument is such a unique process because it is different for everyone. One lesson that is easy for one person could be insanely hard for another person to understand. Everybody goes through a different roadblock. And sometimes it is extremely hard to push through it yourself.
Great advice by everyone in here about reaching out and voicing those frustrations. Sometimes it takes a little encouragement to really pull us through those rough patches. There’s no better place than to do it here. I am proud to be a part of this community and I hope that everyone else that is here is proud too.
It’s been a busy semester when it comes to school. With finals this week, I’m looking to be more active and hopefully can get some original videos on here as well in the next couple of weeks.
Keep up your head up Jak and everyone else who this post applies to. We are all on this together, no matter what the skill level. There are not many communities where someone who just picked up a guitar and wants to start learning is valued as much as someone who has been playing their entire life. That’s one of my favorite parts about this place.
