Who knew a little chip of plastic could be so important to making your guitar playing sound great? A pick is an important tool to learn to be comfortable with. It will allow you to strum, or play single notes, with accuracy and finesse - once you get the hang of it!

At first it may feel awkward, but don't worry - many people have that same experience. Just think back to the very first times you ever held a pencil or a pen and tried to get it to do what you wanted. Now, you are an old pro, right? The same will happen with the pick. Over time it will feel more comfortable and familiar, and become an important tool for your guitar playing.
