title saids it all, just looking for different opinions.

I looked around, but couldn't find any information about Parkway Drive/BMTH pick choices

Its really whatever your comfortable with. Look into the smaller picks such as jazz 3's. They with improve your pick attack as well as your speed.

They all come pretty heavy.

Electric - you plug it into a power outlet in the wall and the music comes from little speakers in the guitar.

Well the thing about heavy picks is they dont give at all, therefor you must learn to give with the string. It doesent sound like much but it seriously improves your overall flow over the strings. Thick picks teach you how to be more nimble, thus faster over the strings. With thick picks you can also really dig in and get good pinch harmonics. They are a bitch to get used to, but worth it.

Ya it makes sense to go with the thicker end, but my last question is what material would suit best?

Dunlop makes a good variety of jazz 3 and similar type picks out of a few different materials. Personally I like the regular jazz 3's and that's what you'll mostly find in stores.

I'm liking the thick gauges Dunlop Ultex. i used to find the Tortex somewhat slippery, but the Ultex is not so, and it sorta has a graphite-to-string feel that makes it feel flaky.

At the end of the day, its all about personal preference. Hell, there are players who use coins. Just use what you feel comfortable with and you can grip the best. The rest is all about technique.

I play melodeath metal and classical if that helps.

Any type of heavy plastic, personally though I hate tortex picks, it feels like your playing guitar with a pointed piece of chalk or something.... But anyways like everyone has said it really about preference. Go to guitar center and spend about 10 bucks, buy 3 or 4 packs of thick picks (or whatever) and try them out. Throw away the ones you dont want and there you go.

Try the Dunlop Big Stubby 3.0 mm picks (the purple ones). They are very good for fast picking and don't hang up on strumming.

don't base your pick choice on someone elses choice because you are NOT them, and only you can decide whats comfy for you.

I understand where your coming from, but the facts are different picks suit different genres and the roles of what your doing with the guitar.

Not really. Its all personal preference - there is no right or wrong pick for any style or genre. Its all about what you feel comfortable using.

ROFL not really. Go to a guitar shop and try out every single type of pick. Once you've found some you like, test out different thicknesses of those picks.

Everyone's going to say Jazz III, but don't jump on the trend right away. Test them out and see how you like them; they take some getting used to. I try them out for fun every time I visit a guitar shop and I still don't get along with them.

I agree. I use Dunlop Tortex 1.14 mm(the thickest that they make) and they're so much easier to use than thin picks.
