I stumbled across a video about picking recently and I disappeared down the rabbit hole that is the YouTube picking community! lol I like puzzles and an a bit of a nerd so this was right up my street! Got myself some picks, a set of clear practice locks and a couple of cheap padlocks and been enjoying learning :) I've got some sparrow practice locks and a cut away coming soon, so can't wait to have a plat with them! Anyway, looking forward to learning from this site, so please excuse any dumb questions! lol

I’m pretty much a noob here too, but retirement has pushed a commercial curiosity into a hobby.
YouTube is indeed a rabbit hole, but choose your sources wisely, as with everything on the www is what it claims to be.

You must always remember, it's the lock that chooses the pick, not you.
