    Nooooo. Also Rocksmith is amazing. I feel pretty good after a couple hours of practice.

    So is there a benefit over picks?

    Fender obviously sent medium celluloid picks by default. But I don't like celluloid. So I bought some nylon picks.

    My fingers slip and slide and I lose my grip on them. The nylon ones have grooves.

    So does the pick material have an impact? Or is it a comfort thing?

    Jim Dunlop 1mm nylon picks are the best in the world.
    Not too flimsy, not too unyielding.

    Kipobe would say he would be proud, but then not actually remember to feel that way.

    Haha, no I'm still playing. Doing okay actually.

    Hardest part for me is strumming without hitting other strings.
