HI IGTians!!. plz guys help me out with this issue. plz read on carefully. i hav a Givson G215 acoustic. now it plays really good. but there is a spot of bother. when i strum it, it produces a great sound. but the thing is i want a slightly different sound of strumming- a little subdued sound. i get this sound when i strum the strings by my thumb(the part of the thumb beside the nail). now is there any pick that can produce this sound? recently i cut a piece of cardboard in the shape of a pick and by BINGO it produced the same sound that i want. but u know the cardboard is not strong and will eventually wear off after considerable strumming. plz tell me about some picks(composition wise) that can produce this subdued sound. also, i cant stick to the thumb technique coz i'm not a fingerstyle player. if u r still not sure of the sound im talkin off here's a reference- a few weeks back there was an add of a motorcycle(don know which brand) that had the song pehla nasha pehla khumar in the background. the guitar strum sound in that is wat im talkin about.
