Re: Picking Trainer
I have a special guitar pick that a friend of mine gave me several years ago that has a tip that has a "threshold" on it. If you pick with just the very tip of this pick, you're fine. If you use "too much" of the pick to pick the strings, the pick will catch on the string and you won't be able pick the note. I forgot the name of this pick, but it's in my guitar case somewhere.
It's pretty hard to use, and I'm not entirely sure if it really adds much to your ability or picking speed, but it is an option.
