The excellent people at Tortex picks have made some special picks for my Great Guitar Escape camp. The shape is a version of the Tortex pick called "The Wedge." It feels slightly larger than the standard shape (which makes it easier to grip.)

I've been using .50mm gauge for a while now, and I really like the "thwap" of the single notes, and the way that a thin pick allows me to play hard without getting tangled up in the strings. Everyone attending the camp will receive some of these picks, so there should be some good thwapping going on. And did I mention the pick scratches? Thin picks do pick scratches the best! Anyway, I hope to see you at the GGE!

Thank you,

Paul
