THE RING PICK AND THE FRETBOARD PROTECTOR
SPEED PICK. UK patent - GB2300063 B
There is a variety of guitar picks for lead and rhythm playing. The rhythm playing is
mostly conducted with the thin picks that are made of different materials. These picks
should be held with a thumb and an index finger. This makes it difficult to use other
fingers during the performance. Moreover, in case of frequent and intensive usage
these picks tend to break easily.
The present invention, a ring-shaped pick (Fig.2) designed to be worn on a middle
finger, completely releases one's hand and, as a result, enables one to use all the
fingers or a conventional pick for a lead playing. Moreover, it's very flexible shaft
makes it long-lasting.
Finaly, this pick increases playing speed as much as three times.
After adjusting the ring to the finger the palm should be contracted into a fist and the
shaft will come into vertical position to the strings. To produce a continuos strumming
one should swiftly move the shaft up and down the guitar strings (Fig.1. 1-2)
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
