I like/love rock/blues/jazz/folk music. I'm often the more softer player for chords and mabye play melodys really soft then belt out stuff for more heaver, noticable sounds.

Any recomendations?

Ive normally used these nylon jim dunlop 1.00, all black...

well jazz III's just to get those out the way

but in terms of getting different dynamics (loud/soft) a lot of that relies on your technique, just use a pick you are comfortable with

there is a difference between plecktrums, thinner ones are better for strumming while thicker are are better for picking and speed. every genre has its fast and slow moments

I'm a more slower player, although jazz is a pain having to do those "runs" through scales to reach a different note :p

If you can buy individual picks, just try some different one out until you find one that you like. I don't know how much they are in Scotland but they can't be too expensive. Other than that, Jim Dunlop Jazz III. I started out using Dunlop Stubby 2.0mm but after trying Jazz III's, I've never went back. They work for everything from neoclassical speed metal to classical.

Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

Junior#1, i appreciate your reply and further improving my thoughts on buying this "god-like" pleck, may you be kind enough to post a kind of photo?

I'd say Jazz III XL;s, Dunlop Tortex 1mm's. To be honest though, go and try some. they're cheap.

Also, kudos on the Yamamoto avatar. Bleach FTW.

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.

Here's a link to the Jim Dunlop picks. I've tried most of them, but for me I found that small, sturdy picks more than big, thin picks.

I don't really have a link lol, I just started using them in 1993 and have never looked back. I personally could never get on with Jazz IIIs, they're just a little bit too small and fiddly for me.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

Nice choice. Anything else usually gives you a "wakka" sound. These picks make only the sound of the attack which is great.
