I have decided I need them. Any suggestions? It probably doesnt matter but I like picks that are not rock solid, but they have to be thick enough that they dont bend when alternate picking in a semi rough-manner.

this is my current choice pick

but when the thumb sweat sets in, it starts to go-a-slippin'

so i want one that wont slip, basically.

finger sweating while picking, huh, you must play guitar a lot!

Velcro. sounds weird but put Velcro on the pick the hard stuff and you will maintain grip in all situations. It is a charm to get used to. It works though.

Dunlop Tortex.

I've used them since I started playing, and I can't even touch other picks - they slide too easily.

im flattered

its really only a problem though when i do downpicking excercises. after 5 minutes of strait 184 bpm it doesnt work because you cant even think about gripping the pick when youre doin that and when i hold it tighter my whole arm tenses up and i have to stop. Thats more than you ever wanted to know but i like typing

Talcum powder. I've never tried it, but I've heard you can get an empty preserves jar, pour some inside, then put in your picks, and shake it up.
