The five on my right hand with which I was born.

...because I never lose them and I loooooooooooove me some Jeff Beck and Chet Atkins.
Jazz III XL, it's stiff, has a sharp tip and is the size of a regular pick. Normal jazz IIIs are way too small and make my hand cramp trying to hold them.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
I switch off between the orange Dunlop Tortex's (.60) and Dunlop Jazz III picks depending on what I play.

The tortex gives me a harder aggressive tone when riffing or getting a Paul Gilbert type of feel. It's much more grinding because it's not as rounded on the edges like the Jazz III.

The Jazz IIIs give me a smooth lead tone, like Petrucci and Eric Johnson. Its easier to roll off the strings very smoothly because the shape of it.

They just glide across the strings, so great for shred and fast solos, and really nice to play chords, although it does sound better with a thicker, larger pick (e.g tortex)

Lolz that guy is a noob.

Leave it on the press, Depress Depress Taboot Taboot.
Anything that's heavy as ****, preferably Jim Dunlop. Can't stand the tinny noise of thin picks when they hit a string. Also, I have trouble playing with thin ones because it takes longer for the pick to pluck the string.

Just personal preference.

I was talking to a local death metal guitarist who used those picks, and I tried (and failed) with them. The XL's rock.
I use V Pick Screamer 2.75mm and Small Pointed 2.75mm

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
i mostly use tortex .60mm (the orange ones!) because of the flexible feel and scratchy attack.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
musicians friend picks, they are realy great.

That and Jazz III's (black or red, or Tortexs, even though I wear those out in like 3 hours.... ) are ftw

EDIT: Or .73/.88 Tortexs, the former in the Sharp kind, and the latter regular.

Why? Because fingerpicking sounds great on clean channels, Jazz III's have awesome solo and palm muting attributes, and Tortexs just feel good.
