I just got an acoustic after 3 years of electric and on my electric I play with jd tortex yellows but they sound somewhat tinny so I was wondering what picks you guys use?

Indeed.

TS: I believe what you're looking for is the searchbar. To answer your question, a lot of UGers (primarily electric players) use Jazz IIIs. I personally use Star picks, which are gimmicky, but work. Then again, I'm primarily fingerstyle.

Who the hell cares about picks anyway? Use the ones that are comfortable for you. Sometimes i go crazy and use a pen or a bronze statuette as a pick. It doesn't ****ing matter as long as it's comfortable. Stop thinking about picks and go practice.

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

Seriously. When in a bind I've even used a toothpick before. Just select the thickness you like best and don't worry about it too much.

thicker picks or picks made from softer material will sound warmer. my husband plays with 2mm to 3mm picks, and they have a nice fat sound. i tend to use 1.5mm to 2mm picks for the same reason - and also 'cause they're easier to hold. the more a pick clicks on the strings, btw, the more the guitar sounds thin or tinny or bright when those picks are used.

My plectrums are made from dried Jimi Hendrix ejaculate. If you can't find them in shops you can always make your own or ask somebody to make them for you.
