I have to use it all the time and even when I pick up the guitar, it takes a good 20 minutes to even get my right hand in the zone. There's no forgiveness with this pick. You really have to have just the right touch, and if you pick too hard with it, which is the tendency for most, the tone is bad. Hard picking with this pick makes for a quick snap and then a lifeless and dull note. But the light touch, just gently nudging the string into vibration, is full of life and rich, clear, sparkly tone. Nothing like being in the zone with this pick where the right hand is just gliding across the strings. But at first, it's pretty clunky for me. Anyone else find this to be true??
