Don't get me wrong they are some of the best picks I've ever used but that's the problem.

I'm afraid if I get hooked and one day when I'm a lot better than I am now, somebody will give me a regular sized and shaped pick to play with and I won't play half as good as I could with a jazz III.


How does getting hooked on Jazz III carry over to playing with a typically shaped and sized guitar pick?

I actually have a similar problem, but I make sure to swap out and be able to do everything with a normal pick as well.

Just carry one around with you, then you won't have that problem.

This is what I do, at least I do when I'm expecting to be somewhere with a guitar there!

The thing is I don't want my playing ability to solely depend what kind of pick I'm using.

i keep to my jazz III as well but when it comes to using a reg. pick i just hold it deeper and it plays just the same
#7
i know what you mean, i felt the same way. i practice with tons of types of picks, so i don't rely on a certain type. i suggest you do the same, as it helps you be ready for anything. jazz iiis rule, though, and are the best picks ever.

It'll happen if you use any picks regularly and then change.

what i would do if i were you, buy lots of different types of picks, mix them all up, and everyday when you play guitar for the first time in the day, just grab a pick at random, whether its light, or medium, or a jazz III, and just stick with that one for the rest of the day.

The benefits of using a Jazz III outweigh the negatives involved in the rare occurrence of someone handing you normal pick.

Unless what you want to play requires Hybrid Picking.

With an old soldering iron tip I melted a hole through one of the jazz III XLs I use and put it on my keychain.

I don't have problems using other types of picks even though I use a Jazz III XL 99 percent of the time.

Just keep one in your wallet. I usually always have 2 Jazz III's in my wallet at a time. Or I keep picks in that little useless pocket on the right side of your jeans. It's finally good for something...

Thats a good idea, I dont think I have Ever used that Pocket, anyway, I would say to swap around when practicing and get used to the feel of other picks but also carry a couple of them around with you if you know there is a chance of you playing guitar.
Like for me, I have a couple in my school bag.

You could always just use normal picks. They work perfectly fine.

Yeah can someone explain why using Jazz III's are so good? I normally use Tortex 1mm's cause they feel nice on my fingers. Do the jazz's actually have some sort of playing advantage not just comfortability?
#25
^^ To guys above, they're not only comfortable and a nice size and shape to play with, but they have a pretty sharp point which is good for faster playing as it means less friction.
