XD Thanks! I have done those things and it's a whole ton easier cx

Also, I now have 12 gauge strings on my guitar, but I've only just recently wanted to tune back up to standard. It's at Drop C atm so it's not that far off; I was just wondering how High it could actually go without risking the strings snapping.. :/

The strings won't snap if you bring it to standard tuning X>  It was made to be played at standard turning in the first place anyway X>

I found that out... CX I just need to grow some balls and be prepared to pay the extra 5$ If something goes wrong next time >.> Thanks anyway XD
So I'm back :3
Hugs given = 0

Geese suck >:I

You want a pick with a sharp point an little to no bend in it. I use a V-Pick, which is plexiglass. I recommend no thinner than a regulation heavy pick. Get some 1.0mm or thicker Dunlop Ultex if you don't want to spend $5 for a V-Pick (lasts much longer though). The rest is in your arm muscles or wrist, whichever works for you. I can also show you what I do through a videocall if you Skype me. My Skype is faanz100.
