I've been using a Sours candy tin to hold my picks for about 3 years except its kinda bulky and i dont need to carry 30 picks with me so i keep 2 in my wallet. I use yellows primarily and orange if its mostly strumming.

Please, no puns. my friend says the worst ones like, "You need a ghoul friend*maniacle giggles* " because I like Zombies.

hey we use the same pics, the .73 tortex
acaz93 (author)  Metal4God7 years ago
They are pretty cheap Good , but honestly I prefer The fender ones they dont worn out as fast
actually the fender ones fade very fast, i took my fender medium, and did like 3 maybe 4 pick scrapes and omg it looked like a saw blade, the tortex ones, i've had the sameones since august!! of 07
pick scrapes are pointless
well depends, i like the sound for the black powder metal i play

I'm using an old mint box to hold my picks...but this is a whole lot cooler. I'm doing this as soon as i can get my hands on a matchbox.

Nice job, simple, but effective! u need to make a clip so u can clip it onto your axe somewhere
acaz93 (author)  gmjhowe7 years ago
yeah , i forgot that , i wonder what i could use?
lawizeg acaz937 years ago
on the guitar strap maybe you could attach it there somehow... Or maybe i can do an instructable on making a cloth holder...Hmm...
you could double sided tape it to the back or neck, or you could stitch it onto the strap, near the part that hooks onto the actual guitar.

Maybe , I think Velcro would make a neater job , or using a security pin ,
Awesome! I like the way you made your photos have the arrows and stuff.
And yes, you should add it to the contest.
Great job, I have some of those same yellow Dunlop picks lying around here...
thoes yellow dunlops are the best pics ever

Nice. I do the same with an old gum container made out of metal. ( No, not altoids, we don't have them here, search for: 'Eclipse.')
