  1. One main problem with the G7 capo (I have owned one for years) is that it is hard to "park" anywhere, unless you have a music stand or shelf nearby. My other capos (including my Kysers and Planet Waves Tri-action) are easy to park on the headstock or mic stand. Also, due to its sleek design and finish, it can be very slippery if you have any sweat on your hands at all. Love the tuning stability of the G7, just wish it was a bit easier to hang onto and park. I find my tri-action to have just as stable of tuning, while addressing the other issues... and they can be purchased for $15 or less.
  2. Okay, I've been using Fender Medium picks for over 20 years. I've tried others, but always seem to gravitate back to the Fenders. I actually really like the "confetti" color, as it's easy to see if you drop it on stage, etc. Plus, they just look cool. A few months ago, I grabbed a pack quickly at a shop and didn't look at the label. Turns out that Dunlop makes the very same style/color of picks. Not a big deal, so I started using them. Oddly enough, I found that the Dunlops seem to last longer and hold their edge better than the Fenders. I know they're just picks, but I'm not crazy about how quickly the Fenders break down. Anybody else noticed this difference?
