I won't be able to check out the clip until tomorrow, but yes, a 1x12 will almost always give a huge boost of quality over a 1x8. If you want the "studio cab," pick up a 4x12, but that's fairly...

Yeah, thin picks can do that, also if you're holding it with too much of the edge and not enough of the flat side hitting the string.
