Radical new design Bionic Pick will change the way guitars are played.

A new way to play guitar strings is introduced with the Bionic Pick--for guitarists or anyone who strums a stringed instrument. It totally eliminates the need to hold a pick for all styles of playing. Features extreme comfort and a natural feel.

PRLog - Dec. 10, 2011 - REDDING, Calif. -- Guitarist Marc Cooper, Matthew Culver, and Pat Tennant in Redding, CA, have announced the release of a new product for the music industry, specifically for those who play guitar.  Matt says the product is a breakthrough in the way the strings are played.  They call their product the “Bionic pick” and is worn on the thumb instead of being held by the thumb and finger, which is the method of the mainstream guitar playing community.
   He believes the incredible simplicity will change the way most people play guitar.  
“It really is a simple device”, Matt says—“so simple that many people will wonder why it was not invented 50 years ago.  It totally bridges the gap between the two styles, those who hold the flat picks with those who like to use their individual fingers.”  
   The concept is not new.  Finger picks (those worn on the fingers and not held) have been around for probably more than a hundred years.  But they are only used by a few who play limited types of music.  He says the main problem with finger picks is that they hurt and they don't work that well anyway.  “The Bionic pick solves those problems mostly because of it's unique shape.  “It looks like a plastic finger—from the top side anyway.  People who see the video understand it right away”, Matt says.  “It's not hard to figure out when you see it in action—even if you're not a guitar player—it's that simple. “
   The three partners have launched their project on the Kickstarter project funding website in hopes of getting enough funds to get production started.  Interested viewers can also see their videos on Youtube.com and Vimeo.com with the search words “bionic pick”.
   Will the Bionic pick really change the way most people play guitars, mandolins, banjos, and anything that's strummed?  Matt believes it will but it will take time.  "You don't change people's habits overnight.  I imagine our first customers will be kids just looking for something that makes a good sound that's easy and works.  This does!"
