    I used a hair dryer. I like to take the surgeon general warnings and the other small stickers off to clean it up. It worked for the big one also. I moved it over so it would fit. I don't like to go over the labels on the boxes. It looks cleaner that way.

    TN,

    Thanks for viewing my vid! And thanks for the compliment on my git skills; I've only been playing for 38 years, so I'm still learning. Really. I have to say, my playing has really improved since I started playing 3- and 4-stringers in open tunings. Really. And yes, those are indeed flat bobby pins glued with Super Glue to the fretboard. Pick's design is amazing. They are very easy to replace when they pop off or get worn down. The "distortion box" is merely my Crate V16 all-tube amp with the Gain maxed out. This is still one of my fave vids. Really. >:-E
