This is difficult to articulate in an email, so I hope you understand what I mean.
Often, I will inadvertently pick a string, not with the 'pick' part of the thumb pick, but with the part that wraps around my thumb. This is especially so, when I play in front of others and am a bit nervous. To remedy the problem, I put a little piece of tape on my thumb and that part of the pick. It is not an ideal solution. My question is; are you aware of a commercially available thumb pick that wraps farther around the thumb? Perhaps so that the 'wrap around' part tucks underneath the thumb print area?
Thanks in advance for your response, and thank you for all your wonderful videos. I enjoy them all especially the Blue Grass Jamming Video. A few months ago, I was in Columbia, South Carolina and visited Bill's Pickin Parlor. It is a laid back place for local talent to do their thing and reminded me of the ensemble in your video.
