Description: Photo Guitar picks are a musical instrument's instrument picks themselves. Basically, guitar picks are a flat plectrum made from one common material, usually plastic, wood, cloth, leather, or metal. Generally, picks are made of only one material, but sometimes they are made of several different materials. They're also often shaped in a blunt diamond isosceles triangle, with both the two equal sides rounded and the third side less rounded. Some guitars even have the flat part of the pick pressed into a finger for a more ergonomic feel. When you're buying guitar picks, it's good to know what you're looking for so that you can avoid buying brushes that won't work well or picks that will break easily. For example, you might want a heavier gauge pick because the strings are harder to play. Or you may prefer a pick with a lighter gauge so that you can get more bass notes. As you'll probably know if you're a beginner guitarists, you're not necessarily going to be able to tell the difference between a heavy gauge and a light one, but you do have to be able to feel it when you hold it in your hands. That's why many beginners choose to buy picks made out of metal as they give off a more solid feel than brushes. There are many other things to consider when choosing custom guitar picks, such as their thickness. The thickness refers to how thick each of the individual strings is. Thicker string gives you a deeper tone, but it also requires you to use more of your fingers to tune it. A thinner string gives you a warmer, mellower tone but it requires you to press down harder on the strings. It's important to note that the thickness of the pick you buy directly influences how quickly you'll be able to play it - the thicker ones often have more metal on the tips so that they require less tapping of the pick to get the right sound. You'll also find that the thickness of a pick affects how easy it is to hold onto - a light touch is required to get a nice tone from a thick gauge.
