Metallica's Kirk Hammett on the guitar pick that changed how he plays

Jacquie Lee

For the first instalment of CBC Music's Show Me Your Pick, we spend some time with Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett.

Hammett debuts his new custom Dunlop Jazz III pick and tells you that "this pick completely changed my guitar style, completely changed how I play, completely changed how I pick. This little pick thing here is the best thing to happen to my playing."

Hammett also explains the significance of the "V" at the top of the pick, and how the heart shape is integral to his playing.

Watch it all in the video above.
