Thank you. I’m always trying a pick and then going back to using my fingers.

@don-grundy Here's a photo of just the pick-- it is kind of heart-shaped after all.  :)

@don-grundy It's more L-shaped with the L being fat.  Each person could adapt the basic shape for the size of their own hand.  I wanted to show the hold on the pick in the photo.  The shape is easy to keep a good yet very light hold, thereby keeping the shoulder & arm relaxed.

I can’t tell. Is it heart shaped?

I cut many of my picks from plastic lids/containers.  This shape offers a very comfortable loose hold and works nicely on even a fast tune.
