your intro is wrong it says that you have "no guitar picks" don't you need 1 guitar pick, and your cutting is very bad but it is a cheap way to get picks, so that one is true

DIY Guitar Picks

Intro: DIY Guitar Picks

It’s that time of year again. Save for the holiday season, right around the corner. So when you look around realizing that you have no guitar picks and you’re too cheap (or lazy) to go to town, what do you do? Luckily for you help is on the way! Unluckily for you it got delayed. So you’re stuck with me instead.

Step One:

All you’ll need is.......

1. Strong scissors
2. Marker
3. File
4. Guitar pick
5. Old credit or gift card

Step Two: Tracing

Put the guitar pick on top of the card and trace.......hardest step right?

Step Three: Cutting it out

This is actually pretty tricky. First you HAVE to cut on the line and staying on it is kind of difficult. You may want to cut a little bit bigger and trim it up later.

Step Four: Trimming it up

This is the trouble shooting and fixing stage. If it’s too big then trim it. If it’s to light, you can trace it and cut that out and glue them together. The nice thing about this is that you can make it any shape you want.

NOTE: the people that make these are pros with big fancy machines. Since you don’t yours won’t always be perfect. The one in this photo ended up looking kind of lame, but it still plays just fine.

Step Five: Filing, filing, filing

This is the step where you’ll use those files. Just smooth the edges and round the corners.

NOTE: (AGAIN) Nail files work too.

Step Six: We’re Out of here

We are DONE! Now go use that cheap, good (or maybe its good, cheap) pick! Feel free to post any ideas on the comments. No, really do post on the comments... please ...

NOTE: I did NOT invent this.

NOTE AFTER THE NOTE: Enjoy your pick :)

Sorry, it's not nice looking or even okay to spell like this. You need to use spellcheck and proofread your 'ables.

Yo i like the way u think!!!

berky93 (author)2009-10-06

I used to do this a long time ago, but I never needed to file the edges. after making a pick, have a quick practice session with it, and it will naturally wear down a bit.

Fix the grammar. Like timheppner did.
