Endorsement Feature: Clayton Guitar Picks

Patrick is now featured on Clayton Guitar Picks’s website. He has been using these picks for the past 5 years and is honored to be part of their family which includes such artists as Bret Michaels, Steve Stevens and Eric Church, among others.

After 20 years of playing, I finally found the right pick for me: Clayton’s custom acetal small teardrop picks. These picks are a triple threat: built to endure rock gigs, subtle enough for acoustic gigs and a great promo tool for music fans. I prefer the lighter gauges which sound awesome right out of the bag eventually molding itself based on your grip. I can’t recommend them enough.

Why did you pick up an instrument in the first place?

I heard Joe Satriani’s “Always With Me, Always With You”. It hit me like a ton of bricks and literally changed my life (I could tell you the date, time of day, weather, etc. of when I heard it). That song made me realize how powerful music is and I try to garner that same feeling for myself and the listener when writing.

Where do you draw inspiration from now for songs?

Everywhere. Whether it’s a life experience (ie my song “Saudade” is about losing my grandfather) or experiences of others (ie my song “Love In Misery” is about a strained relationship knowing in order to feel sadness, you need to have loved). Because my music is instrumental, I can draw from anywhere and hope the listener builds their own story/experience from it.
