Frequently asked questions


Q. How do I hold my Slick Grip plectrum?

A. You hold the Slick Grip plectrum in the same way you would hold any other plectrum. Your top thumb pad should be placed flat and horizontally across one of the Slick Grip plectrum's grip surfaces with plectrum blade facing away from your hand. The side end of your bent index finger should be touching the opposite grip surface. The Slick Grip plectrum should sit comfortably between bent index finger and thumb with only 6mm of the blade edge protruding below the thumb flesh. Strike the strings with the blade edge of the plectrum angled slightly forward.  Both upper and lower blade edges of plectrum should be able to alternately strike the strings with an efficient economy of movement. If the grip nipples are snagging the strings you are holding the plectrum too far back.

Q. Do I need to clean my Slick Grip plectrums?

Q. Do you have any advice for beginners?

A. When strumming rhythm guitar, use wrist and elbow motion. The more aggressive the strum, the more elbow action you will need to apply. When playing lead guitar, use economical wrist motion.
