Picking and sliding from Black Mountain

Thanks to the Bluegrass Standard online/ print magazine for an advertisement feature from the Black Mountain company, famous for their innovative thumb-pick design. The Black Mountain pick, usable both for flatpicking and fingerpicking, was the first to incorporate a hinge and a spring. The inventor, Cole McBride, has now brought out the steel Black MountainĀ® Slide Ring, which also incorporates a spring, making it possible to play slide guitar while retaining the use of all the fretting fingers. Prices are on the Black Mountain website; the Bluegrass Standard remains, as always, free.
