You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can't use any more jokes with picks in this thread!

Wait...nevermind, carry on.

No jokes but you guys are really giving me some great ideas...I'll just have to decide which one to PICK.

Jay Sankey has a neat broken and restored guitar pick idea that can be found in his Best of the Jay Sankey Newsletter Ebook. I think the ebook might be free...I'm not sure though.

I'd be careful burning a pick. Plastics can be toxic and sticky as they burn.

How about some thimble work with thumb picks?

Perhaps the jumping pick a la jumping toothpick. Just a suggestion, I haven't tried these.

I seem to remember there was an entire book (or booklet) published a few years back exclusively on magic with guitar picks. Can't remember the title, but perhaps a Google (or Bing!) search would provide the source.

Most classic effects can be done with pics.

1 pick routine with a big pick finish (from the link above) would be my first choice Smile

When I worked as demo guy at Presto's I used to sell floating match gimmicks by floating guitar picks using a patter line about channelling the spirit of Jimmy Hendrix. I sold a lot of gimicks that way. Looks cool.
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

Oliver Meech has a SUPERB mentalism effect with guitar picks in his book "The Plot Thickens"

worth checking out for so many more reasons than that trick.
I recommend it unreservedly
