Today is a sad day for the philinator and his pick

Gentlemen, i dont know how long youve used a pick for, but i've used a little black pickboy for the past 7 years and today i .......(weep) lost it...... i dont know how to play with anything else i'm skrewed. It might b in my friends car, it was in my pocket and fell out at lunch. the black little pickboy best pick ever. Longest lasting too. now dead......... this may not go under gear and equipment but i didn't care...(alittle upset and pissed)

Don't worry man, picks come and picks go, and i forsee a shiny new pic in your immediate future.

Never give a pick that much power over your life.

Vai has a big thing with the number 7-- maybe it was just time for your pick to go.

It was destiny dude

Man, I've been going through Fender mediums every couple weeks cuz the tip wears off. Then again, I've been using this other really really thick pick (can't think of the name or exact size at the moment) for playing bass at my Youth group for months.

Will gentlemen vais thing with the number 7 was dead on. This gets spooky ready. during 7th hour (highschool) i found it in the 7th row of the parking lot next to my friends car! Spooked.... lil bit. either way this pick is stayin for a long time. last time i bring it too school. Some of u wonder how the pic looks. If i knew how to use my scanner i'd show u but its not worn like u think, like satriani i have a light touch. so this pick hasn't taken much of a beating. Anyone else have something they've had forever with their guitar like a lucky charm.

That's crazy dude. And it only gets worse. My guitar has six strings, which is one less than 7, and the date of my birthday is the 7th of march, and then i took a piss 7 times today, and my phone number has two 7s in it, not to mention that phone numbers are 7 digits themselves.

Seriously though, i got an 84 on a math test recently, and if you subract 7, you get 77. Coincidence? I think not!!! Well, maybe. Okay, probably.

LOL


I had a Santana Pin I used to keep on my strap, but it kept falling off, so I put it away. The longest thing I've kept in relation to my first guitar is the strings on my first electric guitar, which still remain intact today!

. . . and 84 is the number of inches in 7 feet as well!

I recently lost one of my picks also, but I'm pretty sure its time for me to switch from the Dava Control picks to the Dunlop Jazz III anyway.
