Episode 110 - Let's Get Picky

The pick. That's where it starts. You can have a hundred grand tied up in a glorious instrument but if your pick is crummy, or if you use it in a crummy way, you might as well be playing that $99 online deal-of-the day instrument.

Or, conversely, you could be playing that $99 special, and take a little care with your pick choice, and make better music.

All right. Let's talk picks...

The information on making picks from cow hoof material is found within my downloadable book The Mandolin Handbook.

The music for this episode is:

Intro - Buddy Ashmore and Pony Express singing Prison Walls written by Randy Godwin.

Outro - Laird's March (Duet) played by me, myself and I. I created a mandolin video lesson which teaches both parts and you can learn it here.
