i've been trying out all the picks i can find and i just can't find one, but i have found things from other picks and i was wondering is there such a pick that is similar in size to a tortex pick, that has the grippyness of a jazz or stubby pick. any recomendations or suggestions are gratly appreciated.

The Ibanez Steve Vai picks aren't bad.

i use Dunlop mediums.. .60mm

but you should stop being picky on which picks to use and you should worry yourself about playing the instrument...

Dunlop nylons are good.

Are you looking for the thickness of jazz and stubbys, or just the textured grip?

What ballpark of thickness are you into?

You mean something like this?



Same specs as a Jazz III but bigger. I love Jazz IIIs but they are too small for my mitts to hang on too. These solved that problem.

I use these as they have a grippy texture to them and they have a sharp point....its like a Jazz pick but not so small so they are easier to hold on to and still get a good pick attack

The brand "Cool" makes picks that probably close to what you are looking for... and they have a pretty good variety of thicknesses.

Dunlop Ultex/Ultex Sharp. Besides being exactly what you described, they also happen to be indestructible.

Look at Wirething picks, I was given one and the has really good grip as it has a small curve for your thumb and has raised writing for extra grip.

Take whatever pick you like and rough it up - sand it with low grain and slash it with a blade.

Time on earth is like butterscotch; you really want more, even though it will probably just make you ill.

just take whatever pick you like for it's size and shape, and rough up the part you grip a bit using a knife or sandpaper.
