“I have always searched, mostly in vain, for ways of freeing up my right hand while I play. I used to switch from flat picking to fingerpicking to thumb picking, but it was never possible to switch fast enough. Like a lot of people, I had tricks for being able to move smoothly between those techniques, but nothing was ever smooth enough. Then I found out about Fred Kelly picks. I have been so happy with the way these picks let me do everything I need to. I use the white Slick Picks, both for thumb picking and flat picking, and I don’t know if I’ll ever use another thumb pick!” -Tony Ferrizzi
