Are you loosing picks all the time ? Do you carry one with you wherever you go ?? Where do you hold your picks ?
I don't use pick when playing much but I have a special place for them to carry all around.I put two picks behind the battery door in my cell phone wink.gif Since I never go without it anywhere they are always with me..I haven't lost one in a long time because of this.But I tend to forget them on the amp in the practice room.I always feel very happy to find them (even its just the pick) next week when I get there (its public practice room) but that is not always the case..Only problem is when I drop my phone and it hits the ground , picks are all over the place laugh.gif

OH MAN, have I lost my nerves so many times loosing picks! Now i just have a small box on top of my amp and every time I quit playing I keep telling myself "Put all the picks back in the box!" plus I have this really small pocket kinda inside my right pocket on my jeans and I keep 1-2 picks there wink.gif

I bought about 300 picks lol and have them at work, at friends, at home in draws, in all trousers pockets, in wallet and on floor everywhere. If I have a guitar there will be a pick around. I lose picks and I like to give them out to people that I know who are starting guitar who don't have much money.

I actually got a pick holder that goes onto a strap and has some in a line of 6, and that works well for me if I lose one in the middle of playing.

You could always just learn to finger-pick everything... happy.gif

Besides that, the wallet trick definitely works.

Keep them on my amp most of the time but tend to put them everywhere, got a pickup holder for the guitar for present, and from them on I tend to keep them there. It's a useful device! smile.gif

I hold my pick in my hand all day long laugh.gif
I only put it aside when I take a shower or when I go to sleep laugh.gif laugh.gif
Sometimes I think I lost my pick and then I'm searching for it everywhere,
but in most casses I still have it in my hand huh.gif
