    Got tired of the Dunlop 1.5mm picks I normally use, 50¢ each, so I bought a Dunlop Stubby triangle.
    They cost 70¢ and have a hard plastic, but also slightly sticky feel to them.
    And what do you...

    Sally in the Garden? In Gm, not that dark and I’m not sure if it’s what they call a fiddle tune, but always reminds me of snow at Christmas for some reason.

    Maybe a pick made from the tread of an SUV summer tire?
    Or the soles of an old pair of walking boots?
