Hey scov,
I just bought a guitar off of trademe, only a cheapy so dont know the maker but was wondering if I should buy picks to start off with???
or should I go naked and brave it???
Dont really remember what I did way back when I was at school, used to play but have forgotten how to I think :roll: , hoping it all comes back when I get it.

I don't know what your style of playing is but I always use a plectrum myself (not that I'm anything special!) Finger picking can be difficult but sounds great if you master it.

Can't do any harm to buy yourself a few plectrums just incase!


I follow classical guitar, so I finger pick when playing notes.
But I use plectrums for rythm guitar.
Basicly, buy a plectrum (it's very very cheap, obviously) and see what you like yourself.
I use Dunlop Tortex ones myself, the red ones (0,50 mm) and the yellow ones (0,73 mm) the most often. Noel Gallagher uses the green (0,88 mm)ones, I believe. I love them and don't use any other picks anymore.

You might wanna start quite thin, since that' easier to play at first. Depending on your preferences, you can go thicker along the way.


Thanx scov, got the plectrums you told me about, havent had a chance to try them out yet but will tomorrow, really cheap too $1 each.
Got my guitar too, abit small but I think it'll do, have managed to tune it myself, first time too :mrgreen:
Have also found a great site that teaches Noels riff for Wonder Wall, all step by step so should be fun tryin to play like the master.
Thanx again

I'm all about the Dunlop Orange. Red feels way too thin, anything else is way too thick. Thin enough to strum, thick enough to pick individual notes. Oh yeah.
