I heard a bunch of hard plastic pick sounds watching this same take in the REC forum just a moment ago. Are you using a dunlop big stubby? There's a couple of angles you can hold those picks to which will totally recreate this sound, I had similar experience last spring. All I can say is to check to see if you need as much gain as you are using and also to see about different alignment of the pick against the strings. Some rotation may remove that sound for you.

Check the angle of the pick and work on your tone, as this may help with pick noise.
Some noise will always be there though, but you should be able to get rid of the worst parts smile.gif

I never get this playing a real amp but on some sounds on the POD X3 Live. If you're on a didgtal interface you could maybe try EQing it away if switching picks doesn't do the trick.

Try another pick really, because besides from 0:19 you seem to have a very good picking...

how did you get the snow effect? tongue.gif

I think it could also be down to pick angling - some might enjoy the sound they get from angling the pick a certain way. I find that hitting the strings dead on straight gives, for me, an unwanted click-i-di-clack sound, so angling to pick to point slightly downwards softens it and also helps more fluid picking.

Play around with angles, but I think the problem is in your amp/effect processor...

Just pick harder and you will eliminate it, lost of players who play with distortion tend to pick lightly, so amp pick up the pick noise also. Hold pick firmly and pick harder!

Hmmm, now I'm getting confused here Vasili..... maybe that goes for distorsion (haven't really tested since I dont face this problem...) but I'm a real "heavy-picker" and tries to pick LIGHTER when playing jazz in order to get rid of the pick noise..... ???
I also think that the pick noise here has nothing to do with Your technique, its rather some un-pleasant frequencies in the sound... (high-mids) Just try a different sound/setting....

that's actually a very good advice. Picking hard is a must for any electric guitar player. it doesn't mean you have to do it everytime but you have to be able to do it.

It sounds to me like your having the same picking noise i am trying to remedy because i have to relearn my picking technique due to injury. Slowly pick on the string and look at your pick angle when it glides across the string. I am getting this problem noise because your not plucking the string, the pick is rolling over the string like a bow which makes this sound a slight angle adjustment, and minor hand gesture correction is in order. Make sure your plucking the string and not raking the string, you want to make sure that the pick moves away from the string as soon as you sound the note, not sound the note and continue to scrape along its edge as you move away from the string.

Daniel
