Every rhythm guitarist has his favorite guitar, but how many get their own pick named after them? Romino Grunholz, our specialist in all things rhythm at Django in June this year, is one such player — if you like what you hear you can find his namesake pick for sale at Manouche Picks (results will almost certainly vary if you are not Romino).

With Romino as the swinging engine of the Paulus Schäfer Trio, that pick gets quite a workout. It’s not just anyone who can provide the bedrock foundation that supports Paulus and Dominique, but Romino makes it look deceptively easy. Believe me, it ain’t — but after a few classes with Romino, you might find yourself in possession of a few more secrets of the trade.
