So here I was thinking what I could use for gripping my guitar picks. They tend to slide out of my hand so I thought how about some Duct Tape? But then I took it a step further. I used the scraping part of a nail clipper to make it a bit rougher so it's not shiny and slips out of your hand. So far these have worked for me. I used these on my guitar picks (I use a medium gauge) and my bass picks (I use a heavy gauge).
Say NO to expensive "grip picks" and
Say YES to Duct Tape Grip Picks! . . .
Step 1: Materials Required:
- Guitar or Bass Picks (however many you wanna do this to)
- Duct Tape (any color. I just happened to have black)
- Scissors (For cutting!)
- Nail Clipper (for scraping. you need the scraper part)
Step 2: Putting the Duct Tape
This picture shows what it should look like across (I did not color it in so you can see how the shape goes) It's real simple. Do this on both sides so the tape sticks to each other. Then you want to cut around the excess with the scissors.
Step 3: Scissor Time
Step 4: Nail Clipper Scraper
To make the grip with the scraper: I made vertical scrape lines, then horizontal scrape lines. Then horizontals scrape lines and for extra effect poked the scraper at the pick a few times all over the tape area there fore giving it more grip. You don't have to do the poke part you can just do the lines and you'll get your grip.
Step 5: You're All Done...Yay!
Best of luck, and enjoy.
P.S. By the way, That is an Altoids Smalls container. These little containers are great, especially if you are carrying something on the road with you. It's the same concept as my other instructable: just dump out the sweets and put the picks in! KEEP ON ROCKIN'!
