Just curious as to what kind of pick everyone uses. I like the gator grip .96mm, and .88 and 1.14 tortex.

I didn't bother with a poll, just because there are too many kinds.

I drop my pick all the time. No way I'd gig without a grip.
#16
usually i use dunlop 1.14s but I lost all of them (damn pick gnomes) so right now I'm using this thick peavey pick i found in the hallway at school last year
#17
I used to use Jazz IIIs, but I realized that I don't really like them and I'm back to good ol' 3mm Big Stubbys and 1.5mm Gator Grips.

like the shape of gator grips but they become useless after 20 minutes of playing.

Thus, I use Tortex .88 (green) because they're comfy and last forever.

dunlop big stubby 3mm. i'm currently looking for something similar but better.
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.

everyone seems to use jazz llls. I've never been able to try them. Every good guitarist I've ever talked to uses heavier picks. I just use fender mediums (only product from fender I'll ever use) and I can play pretty fast. Heavies make it too hard to strum any chords.

Heres a diff question then...

Does anyone here regularly use anything besides a guitar pick or their fingers to pluck the strings?

playing by yourself is like masturbating, sure it feels great, but it's nothing compared to the real deal.
