Im kind of a beginner and play metal type stuff with low chords or fast high notes and i was wondering what good picks or strings to use. I was thinking Dunlop Tortex picks at .88mm. should i get thicker ones? Also i was looking at ernie ball regular or coated regular, or should i get a different brand or bottom heavy ones or something? thanks.

Try out a bunch of things. Find what you like. Picks and strings are personal preference items, we can't even begin to tell you what you'll like. If there were a 'best' of each one, we'd all buy the same stuff.

These threads always turn into dozens of people just posting what they use anyway.
