Guitar Musician e-zine 05/24/2006
In This Issue:
| "Lenny Breau is one of the true geniuses of the guitar. I
suppose he is a musician's musician. His knowledge of the instrument and the
music is so vast, and I think that's what knocks people out about him. But
he's such a tasty player too. I think if Chopin had played guitar, he would
have sounded like Lenny Breau."
Ralph returns from the doctor and tells his wife that the doctor
has told him he has only 24 hours to live. Given this prognosis, Ralph asks his wife for sex. Naturally, she agrees, and they make love. About six hours later, the husband goes to his wife and says, "Honey, you know I now have only 18 hours to live. Could we please do it one more time?" Of course, the wife agrees and they do it again. Later, as the man gets into bed, he looks at his watch and realizes he now has only 8 hours left. He touches his wife's shoulder and asks, "Honey, please, "Just one more time before I die?" she says, "Of course, dear."
And they make love for the third time. After this session, the
wife rolls over & falls asleep. Ralph, however, worried about his impending death, tosses & turns until he's down to 4 more hours. He taps his wife, who rouses. "Honey, I have only 4 more hours. Do you think we could.....?" At this point the wife sits up and says, "Listen Ralph, I have to get up in the morning ... You don't."

GUITAR Q AND A
Picking The Right Pick
Charley Holand; Seminole, FL
Q: Does the size or shape of my pick affect the sound of my guitar? Do I need to use different picks to play metal guitar?
A: Yes there are picks that are used to create specific sounds on the guitar. Here are some of the most common.
Thin Picks - These are commonly used for playing rhythm guitar. Because they are flexible, they bend as you strum and help create a flowing rhythm. There also is a percussive sound that is generated that adds a great rhythm effect.
Medium Picks - Medium picks are the most common picks used. You can play rhythm or lead effectively. I suggest new players start with medium gauge picks while getting the feel for the guitar.
Heavy Picks - Heavy picks are widely used for playing lead guitar. Because they have a direct response to your hand movement many players choose heavy gauge picks to shred lead guitar.
Different Shapes - The shape of a pick is very personal. Everyone seems to have a shape that feels best for them. There are small and large picks available. There are even triangle-shaped picks.
Tip Shape - The tip of the pick can be very important. Many lead guitarists use a sharp-pointed pick to help generate more speed while rhythm guitarists tend to want rounded-tip picks to help make a warm rhythm sound.
Pick Material - The two common choices that you have for picks are water based and oil based. Water-based picks absorb water and tend to be easier to grip while oil-based picks are shiny, not porous, and can slip in your fingers as you play.
I suggest that you have an assortment of different picks to use at different times while you are playing; I know I have about 100 different picks to choose from when I play.
Hope this helps!
