NotePlease remember - for the BEST results, Paul Smith recommends that you learn to finger pick 
            while using plastic finger picks.  These days it's not easy to find them in stores so they're offered 
            here on this site.  Also, the other guys who sell picks on the internet are not going to help you  
           
to fit your picks or learn to use them, they won't even tell you how to wear them correctly.  
            Their only concern is to sell you something.  This is where you will get all that information 
            and much much more.  Please buy your picks here! 
We don't want you to get discourage 
            and quite using them.

How to Measure
  For information on how to measure your fingers please read under 
  
How To Measure  Your Finger for plastic Finger Picks  (New window)

   
1. 
If your ring finger measurement is 1 + 7/8 inches, or larger, then you should get Large Picks.  
     2. 
If it is exactly 1+ 7/8", you might want to measure the other two fingers too.  
          If the other two are larger than 1+7/8", you should get Large Picks.  
     3. 
If all your fingers are 1+7/8" or smaller, you need Medium Picks. 

We
don't want to send you the wrong size picks, so please measure to be sure!  
  Sorry, but we cannot guarantee that you pick the correct size.  It has to be your call!!!

Fitting Plastic Finger Picks
Jim Dunlop plastic finger picks as they come from the factory are not fitted to your fingers personally.
However, they can be made to fit just right.  They should fit snuggly enough that they don't come 
flying off when playing but not so tight that they hurt after wearing them for a while.  If you buy finger picks 
from this site
, we will include instructions with the picks about how to properly wear the picks and details
about how to accomplish a good comfortable, usable fit. Also included is suggestions about how mark them to
identify the picks quickly.  Paul has done this many, many times, and these are his easy to follow instructions
and suggestions.
  If you follow these, then your plastic finger picks will fit each finger just right; they will feel and 
work great, and they will be "your personal picks."
                                       

                                               
Customized Picks

Paul Smith
can further customize "your picks". Paul has been using plastic finger picks since 1971. His years 
of experience can be passed on to you this way. These customized picks are actually individually reshaped by Paul
himself.  Using only hand tools he reshapes the pick tongue in his own way to make them easier to use.  Then he polishes
the tongue of each pick with steel wool to make it a smooth finish so the strings of the guitar will just role off. 
This customizing of the picks helps to make them easier to get between the strings of  "Dreadnought style" or
"any steel"
string guitars. 

This customizing of picks is something that Paul did for himself years ago and now he has found that it helps
others as well.  It makes the picks more forgiving, less cumbersome, and so they help people who are just
leaning
to play with plastic picks. However, on a "classical", or "concert" type guitar with "nylon strings", customized
picks although helpful, are not really necessary because the strings are wider apart.  Paul will also work on the thumb
pick too.  This will help prevent some of that annoying sound and the damage that comes with hitting the top of your
guitar with that pointy thumb pick as it comes from the factory.

This extra custom job is all done by hand, personally by Paul Smith.  It is well worth the extra money! 
He would make more money working at McDonalds, but it is something he does because he wants to help people 
learn to finger pick and he views it as a service he provides. They work great and can help alleviate some of the 
frustrations that comes with learning to use plastic finger picks.  You'll have a better feel and more control
while playing with these customized picks.  Also, it will make them even more "your picks."

Customized Picks Guarantee
If your not satisfied with the
customized picks, simply return them within 30 days 
and we will refund your money or send different picks, whichever you like.
Guaranteed! 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  

 
>>  We suggest ordering more than one set......Why?
             Because two sets are cheaper per set, also if you're
                like Paul, you may tend to lose them like he does!

If you are new to finger picking but are serious about learning.... Consider this:
                                  
      
How much would you pay for guitar lessons?  They are $40/hour at our local music store!  
  
A young child can learn the complicated patterns of speech and grammar simply by listening to others talk.  
If exposed to two languages, a child can learn to speak both languages - and without a lick of an accent.  
There are cases where some were exposed to up to seven different languages while growing up, and they 
can speak all seven tongues, fluently and all without any accent.  Incredible?  Yes it certainly is!  
The  mind has an incredible ability to learn simply by listening.  
   As a "young child" to the art of  finger picking, do not underestimate how much you can learn 
simply by listening closely to the guitar work of  accomplished guitarists who play finger style guitar.

 
Paul asks, "Please remember to show your appreciation for what I have providing free of 
                    charge
by purchasing my music CD's along with the picks.   You will most certainly 
                    be happy you bought them because they will help you in your finger picking endeavors."
