The guitar pick is one of the most common accessories in the entire music industry, to the point where it's become as much a symbol of music as the guitar itself. But the popularity of the pick doesn't mean you have to settle for the status quo. In fact, since this is a tool that directly connects you to your instrument, customization is an essential part of getting the best possible results. You deserve a pick that's all your own, and if the ordinary fare isn't cutting it, then this selection of specialty picks might just hold the answer. Here you'll find an assortment of exotic guitar picks that do things a little bit differently - so you can, too.
As a matter of fact, personalization isn't the only reason for specialty guitar picks. Just take a look at the D'Addario Planet Waves Pick Ryte Training Pick to see what we mean by that: rather than offering any unique innovations over standard picks, they're designed to teach you proper finger placement so you can improve your technique, speed, accuracy and tone with virtually any guitar pick. In some cases, like the Mick's Picks Composite Felt Pick 3-Pack, the difference is strictly in the material. Felt picks have a softer surface that takes the edge off a sharp guitar sound, making it better suited to gentler songs.
Of course, if a radically different design is what you're after, there are plenty of specialty picks ready to deliver it. Take the Fred Kelly Picks Freedom Finger Guitar Picks, for instance - available in poly or delrin, they fit your finger something like a second fingernail, allowing for a more natural playing style.

No matter which specialty picks are the right fit for you, from the studio-oriented Mick's Picks Recording Pick Assortment to the "undroppable" SnakePick 3-Pack, what matters most is that you're coming out of this section with the best collection of picks to meet your personal playing needs and preferences. So take your time and choose with care - or try one of everything if you like! Just as with your guitar, effects and other accessories, your picks are up to you.
