Blue Rodeo guitarist Colin Cripps tells us why he pays $1 for his prized guitar pick

Jacquie Lee

Blue Rodeo was in CBC Music's Studio 211 for a First Play Live of the band's latest album, 1000 Arms. We took a quick minute with guitarist Colin Cripps and asked him to show us his pick.

He tells us that "these are rare little picks to get. They're made in West Germany and they're made by a company called Herdim. These little beauties cost me about a buck a piece. Normally picks cost you 10 cents." He goes on to explain why he's willing to pay 10 times more than most guitarists for this prized pick, and how he uses it to make the strings sound brighter. Check it all out in the video below.
