    Sorry, I ain't buyin' it; my buddy had 27 left-handed guitars but not a single left-handed pick...

    So when he passed away his wife and I talked about what he might be doing up in heaven. She said "He's probably pllaying a left-handed harp." We laughed about that; we ascertained that there are no left-handed harps, just like there are no left-handed pianos or left-handed drums.

    Sadly, he told me his teacher in elementary school would slap his left hand with a ruler and make him use his right hand for writing, etc. I can only imagine how quickly a teacher would be fired for trying that today, and for good reason.

    I'm glad he persevered, he was a highly accomplished left-handed guitar player and we played well together.

    You know, last night I was rummaging in my case and mistakenly grabbed an old Guild celluloid pick. I loved it!

    Of course, it won't last as long as the Dunlop Primetone, although it quite a bit cheaper!

    I have several old Guild picks in a little collection I have in the case. And also some that came from the current Guild Store which I also like. After using celluloid again, I may have to use it some more - made me feel young again - reminded me of the days when celluloid was one of the few choices you had. You know, when life was simple, etc. etc. etc.

    But more importantly the old classic sound and tone - I just wish they didn't make such a "celluloid dust" mess on the guitar when you play them hard. I need to start imagining a big crowd and tossing them out there after a few songs, and grab a new one...
