You really do deserve it! You have been here from day one and have encouraged everyone to be the best that they can be. Keep doing what you are doing and ignore the hate. Greatness is what is recognized and what will be remembered. Just look at all of these posts.
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.
