In the meanwhile, I bought a Pickboy "handmade bone" pick. Grips very well, and I do LIKE it.....but when compared to my Switchblade (now it's "buffed" from playing for a month!!) the tone just doesn't compare! Plus, the bone pick has just a bit of "resistance", thus slowing down my "top picking speed" a bit, whereas V-picks are very fast and light.

Also, I picked up several of the Dunlop Tortex Sharps, in heavier gauges than I used to play. V-picks taught me that a thicker pick can change the tone. My thought was, "Tortex always felt great, and gripped well....but I played a .88mm, and perhaps a thicker one will work well AND have better tone!!" If it did, it wasn't by much....and the tone was still the WORST when compared to the bone pick, or v-picks.

I'm doing all this comparative investigation NOW, so I can settle into my perfect pick as soon as possible. I wanted to be onto my 3rd or 4th v-pick order already, and working on "modifications" to the grip. Oh well, I'll get there asap.

Patience truly is vital. Guitar has taught me that, if anything.

Here's a pic of my first, and failed, attempt to modify my v-pick.

I just happened to have that outdoor "grip tape" at work, so figured I'd give it a shot. No bueno. Next up.....hockey tape!!
