The Special Guitar Pick


Originator....Tom Jeary

THE PROBLEM:  to allow a guitar player with weakness in the hands to hold a guitar pick.

THE SOLUTION:  the special pick was constructed of the same moldable plastic used for making splints. The pick of choice is attached first to the "L" shaped form. The whole form is then heated in near boiling water and, when pliable, wrapped tightly around the thumb and forefinger .Held in this position the the hand is run unter cold water until the plastic sets. The end result is a pick firmly held in the correct position without requiring finger pressure. A strip of soft felt can be bonded to the inside of the grips for added comfort.
