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.

hey we use the same pics, the .73 tortex
acaz93 (author)  Metal4God6 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
acaz93 (author)  Metal4God6 years ago

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)  gmjhowe6 years ago
yeah , i forgot that , i wonder what i could use?
lawizeg acaz936 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.
acaz93 (author)  jackfr0st6 years ago
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
