      Hey Bill, thanks a bunch for the kind comment. 🙂

      To answer your questions, I think pretty much any thick pick will work. I just prefer the smaller jazz style picks because I have been using them forever and they produce a very fast and sharp attack. But there are many players who use standard pick shapes that have incredible results (Al DiMeola comes to mind). As long as it is over 1.0 mm in thickness I think they can all work great for whatever style you play.

      As for the slide guitar lessons, unfortunately I don’t have any on the site. The sole reason why I don’t is because I truly suck at slide guitar. HAHA.. It just never really interested me I guess.

      Also, what do you mean you can’t access the Premium lessons from your country?

      Thanks for watching! Carl..
