Holding a Guitar Pick

When holding your guitar pick place it between the tip of your first finger and thumb. It's not a good idea to hold the pick too far back or too far forward in your fingers. Try not to hold it too tight or too loose.

The Blues by Joe Pass
Joe Pass, the son of Mariano Passalacqua, a Sicilian-born steel mill worker, was raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Born into a non-musical family, Pass started to play the guitar after being inspired by actor Gene Autry's portrayal of a guitar playing cowboy. He received his first guitar, a Harmony model bought for $17, on his 9th birthday. Pass' father recognized early that his son had "a little something happening" and pushed him constantly to pick up tunes by ear and practice scales and not to "leave any spaces" - that is, to fill in the sonic space between the notes of the melody.

"I have recently purchased a Sullivan Guitar and I want to say that the craftsmanship far surpassed my expectations. The quality of sound acoustically and electrically is way better than any Taylor or Martin I have ever played on. The detail work on the bindings and butt strip are awesome and the finish is excellent. I especially like the hand carved "S" in the headstock. The action and intonation are great too. If you have not tried or own a Sullivan Guitar you should because you are missing out on a high quality instrument.

I liked the first guitar so much I am ready to place my second custom order."
Barry Sacco
