Bits and pieces found this very useful product, Gorilla Snot, which is a gripping aid - a non-gooey, naturally refined tree rosin. It reacts with your body's natural chemistry and heat output to retain a steady grip on picks drumsticks, bows, and any other hard to grip instruments. Around our house, Gorilla Glue is the adhesive we swear by. It works great on wood and other tough to repair items. It works better than Super glue in many cases.
