I make my own picks out of mayo and peanut butter jar lids. My hands are slippery and I tend to have regular picks slip out so I make my pics
slightly larger than regular ones. I cut the shape on the band saw, file the edges, file the flats to thin it down, and then I sand with 220 grit to
clean up and thin more and follow with 600 wet sanding. I end up with picks that nobody else wants, but are perfect for me.
Maybe the ghost of Jimmy Hendrix is stealing your picks, but if you make one out of every mayo and peanut butter jar that you come across, you will
soon have so many that if Jimmy takes one now and again you will still have plenty more without having to buy any.
You should research the pick preferences of famous dead guitarists to see which, if any, preferred your brand and size of pick.
