    Unless he;s planning on catching it in his mouth ( a show off move at best) then he's doing it wrong.
    Also I figured out how to do this simply when I was 10.

    Proof that science is making great strides towards solving this dilemma that has confounded guitarists for ages.

    Since much of scientific research is funded by us all, I for one am just happy to know that our money is not just being frivolously tossed away.

    I'm a fingerstyle player, so I don't lose picks. I do occasionally get my right hand stuck in the soundhole, though. I hope to goodness somebody is researching a solution to my problem.

    “I hope they call my technique the ‘Large-Hard-on-Collider.’”

    Okay, I just busted out laughing when I read that.

    I generally use fuzzy logic when dealing with that problem.
    I leave it in there till the next string change.
    AKA string theory.

    MIT guys are way funnier than me though.

    This is the most ridiculous waste of time I've ever seen from academia..... he should have been focused on more important issues.....like whether maple or rosewood fingerboards sound best.

    Yet another scientist lost in the cone of uncertainty.

    I thought the release of a pick was due to the theory of chaos.

    In the violin world, over time the stuff that falls in tends to form into a little planetoid.
    A luthier always saves it and returns it to its rightful place before gluing the top back on.
    The cosmos will not forget MIT...

    Yup. And you get very good with practice. I got to the point of being able to do it within the first couple of tries.
