    Tuck one into the strings of your main or only guitar like a baseball card in the bicycle spokes, or just have ONE PLACE you keep all your picks ALWAYS and get used to putting them there EVERY TIME. I can't remember the last time I really LOST a pick. (knock wood)

    How do you Stop loosing guitar picks? Isn't that the eternal question?
    I keep Mine in one particular Spot whenever I Stop playing, kinda works for me. Also I have one in my Wallet. Some people keep condoms there, I say a Pick is the only thing you truly need. Bet Chad does the same!

    My way is to own so many guitar picks that I don't know whether I'm missing any of them. What I used to do was buy picks in bags of 72 and leave them everywhere. I stopped doing that when I switched to mostly using the Andy James picks.Those I only keep right here at my practice area.

    This is beyond dumb but I keep losing my guitar picks so freaking quickly I’ll buy like 6 at a time and by the end of the week I have 1 😂 any suggestions on where to put them when I’m done playing or how you guys store them
    My dad got a wood lathe back in July or so. After he had gotten some practice in he asked me what stain to use on his at the time current bowl project. I went with the dark stain and went back inside. Next morning he came in and handed me the bowl and said "here you go". I ended up setting it on my desk and put all my picks in it. I know some folks put their go to pick under the strings at the 1st fret or if they have a truss rod that screws down they will loosen up the far end of it a tad just enough to squeeze the tip of a pick in under it. Dunno if that could damage it though.

    I have my picks in a place where I can remember where I can find them. I usually put them in between my strings, or put the on top of my dresser or put em in a little bag. But I really recommend getting a tin. I bought a James Hetfield puck tin with 6 picks off of Amazon. I usually take 3 of the same pick each and put them in there.
