All I can say is good luck with your pick. I am also new to guitar and I already have six because I'm looking for just the right one, and most are bought online. :roll: :note1: :note2: :note1:

I just can't help myself. They are so pretty!!! Also, in the back of my head I keep thinking that if I find the right guitar that it will make me a better player. Until I find it I keep looking and keep practicing... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I just started playing too. Bought an epiphone Les Paul which I'm giving to my son and picked up a minty Jackson Js22 to continue learning on. Currently working on power chord progression. Good luck

I find Snarling Dog Brain picks (nylon) or Jim Dunlop (nylon) picks easy...They don't spin around & the knurls keep them in place.
