I was going to some ones house to play guitar with them and i wanted to bring some pics but I couldnt find my pic holder. So I was playing with a rubberband and I figured out a great way to kep my picks together.

Step 1: Get Your Guitar Picks and a Rubber Band

Im an using 3 picks but depending on the size of your rubber band it can hold a lot more.

Step 2: Now We Start

Put the rubber band on the guitar pick like in the picture.

Step 3: Twist It

Step 4: Wrap Around

Take the end with the loop and pull it around the the other side.

Step 5: Hook the Loop on the End

Now you hook the loop to the the pointy end.

Step 6: You Are Done :D

All done :) If you want you can hook a keyring ot a chain or something to the twisted part :)

My solution has always been to slightly unscrew the top screws of my strat and to shove my picks up in there. Viola!

ksimonte (author)mondaymonkey2008-05-05

I just put my picks between the tone knobs on my strat

I just use a Crown Royal bag to carry all my guitar supplies. Those bags come in handy and I have far too many of them.

interesting, i just use the bill of my hat. its got a hole in it so i put some staples to make the shape of a pick and it works pretty good. i always have at least two picks with me at all times.

I looked at your instructions for about two minutes and I have no idea what you did...the pictures are impossible to see.

Sk8rDuck (author)acebandit2007-07-16

pierrehenri (author)2006-11-13

can you do it without smoke ?

I think that's his camera. Nice idea BTW...

Correction: "I think that's her camera." ;)

Sk8rDuck (author)2006-11-13

im not sure if the 'smoke' you are talking about is the grainy-ness of the pics or the white in the bg. The pics are grainy because I had to use a webcam since my digital isnt working and the white is a white shirt I had in front of my since the shirt I was wearing was dark and striped and I wanted to make it as easy to see the picks as possible with a webcam and not that much light. BTW im a girl :P

FrenchCrawler (author)Sk8rDuck2006-11-14

Sorry bout that, I should have stuck with my usual she/he (or s/he) just to cover both sides :P But now that I know (well, now we all know ;) ), I'll know to put "her" on your future instructables :)
