How to Start a Fire with a Guitar Pick | VIDEO

Image placeholder title

Singing songs around a campfire is an American tradition. But say you’ve got the guitar and the firewood…but you’ve got no matches. What do you do?

As Brad from Big Family Homestead shows you below, all you need is a guitar pick and a fire steel. Of course, you need the right kind of pick, one made of celluloid or cellulose…which is one more reason to always carry a few different varieties. (See this article for additional guidance.)

“Guitarists everywhere rejoice!” writes Brad. “Now you too can stay warm in the coming zombie apocalypse.”

And if you run out of picks, you can always practice playing fingerstyle.

Just don’t let the fire go out, or you’ll have to deal with the zombies.
