My pick falls in my acoustic one more time. It drives me mad! No method works twice in a row. Like shaking it upside down, it works once every full moon on my guitar. THen you got the hold slide it around till you see it, and then get it out method. Then you have the HOLLY KICKS YOU IN THE FACE METHOD. I hope it dies. The end.

It's not hard to get the pick to the middle of the acoustic, right? Well, place a piece of tape double sided on the eraser of a pencil, stick the pencil in the guitar and touch the pick. Voila!

Or you can play with a metal pick so you can get it out with a magnet - metal picks have a really nice tone on acoustics too.

These things work quite fine - they cover the resonance hole on the guitar so that nothing can fall in. normally these things are used to avoid feedbacks with the interrior microphone of the guitar on high volumes (on stage for example).
Holiness is in right action and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves. What you decide to do every day makes you a good person... or not.

Drill a small hole in the pick and attach a long bit of thread. Attach the other end of the thread to your wrist....end of problem !

I do the ol' shaking-while-the-soundhole-points-downwards trick. After about 30 secs. of shaking (max), I hear that satisfying "ting" as the pick hits the strings on the way out.

But I totally know what you mean; I used to play acoustic much more, and that darned pick would fall in half the times I played. Now I'm more into using my fingers, though.


... oh, and please, don't kill me.
... and that's all I have to say about that.

ALL generalizations are WRONG

Sorry for doing this again, but the phrase is actually "once every blue moon." And I usually use the "Evan smashes the guitar against the wall" method.

"Once every full moon" is also a phrase which can be used, and I use it.
