I'm sure it happened all the time. I mean, it happens to all of us, doesn't it?

What'd he do, just strum with his index and thumb together while turning to a few extras on his amp, or something?

How about Bobby?

These guys wern't gods, after all.

I never really noticed it.

What I like is palming the pick. Warren Haynes is really good at it.

CHeck this one out. at 3:05 he switches to the pick for just a few seconds and then back. But he does it a few times afterwards.[/youtube]

good call, Lazy, i never thought of that yet i am always frustrated when i can't find my pick after i put it down. of course the best place to put your extra picks is right under your picking hand. damn, you are clever, thanks for the tip!

edit: just realized my LP has a raised pickguard so this won't really work, but i am gonna find a place on my guitar to stash my backups.

No - But I HAVE seen him get frustrated with a mic and unplug it causing a loud POP and throw it to the ground. Boy did Parish scramble...:shock:

You could hear the crowd gasp and then get real quiet.

Hmm... I don't remember which show it was - it was in the mid 80's on the east coast though. Not sure.

This may seem wierd, but I actually own one of those but never knew you were supposed to stick it on your guitar... That makes so much sense! At least I hadn't removed the backing to the sticky part yet! Thanks for the common sense, dude!

yeah most guitar shops will just give those to you if you just ask... also gardening foam can be used and put just about anywhere, for example tape it to the mic stand, strap it into your belt, etc.
