I use V-picks, google them, they are fantastic picks.

They are quite thick, so they take time to get used to.
Wait.

I say just go out and try as many different brands, thicknesses, and styles as you can and find which is most comfortable to you

i'm a medium pick person myself, but i picked up a few of those Jazz III's and love them for all things solo related. well pretty much anything heavy related too.

i still stick with my dunlop Gator .58's for everything not metalish.

the two best picks out there in my opinion.

Dunlop 2mm pick = the best. Especially if you play fast music, like Speed/Thrash Metal.

Asking the Pit to play this is kinda like asking the guy who makes suggestive gay jokes if he wants to have sex with a man.

There is no pick that fits a genre. One metal guy plays with 0.60mm tortex, another metal guy Jazz III. One guy prefers nylon, the other tortex. And as everyone has a different picking technique, exact sound qualities can't be pinpointed for different types of picks.
You should just buy a bunch, and check which you like best.

I myself use Dunlop Tortex 1.17(ish)mm and 0.60(ish)mm.

dunlop Tortex .88mm (green) I love them and i'm pretty sure Kirk Hammett uses them so if you like to play Metallica, you might as well use what he uses!

Jazz III or Tortex purple sharps. Great picks.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.
