Basically as said in the title. Will the pick I use affect my ability to pull off pinch harmonics? I've never really paid much attention to what pick I use, I pick up whatever is closest to me really and I've been playing a lot more metal so I'm going to be using heavier gauge picks now, will this affect my ability to pull of pinch harmonics?

I think it does and it has to do with technique as well.

I know technique comes into it, I have no trouble pulling them off on G & D strings, I use to be a lot better at them though. I'm wondering if it's my technique that's degraded or it's the picks I'm using. I don't know what thickness they are, it's warn off but they feel like 0.8 or so.

What is reccommended?

I use 1.0 mm and I get pretty good pinch harmonics from it.

Cool, I think I'll order a load of different sizes and see which is best.

Just looked em up, expensive for picks are they handmade?

Are they worth it?

Completely, they last way longer, feel better and you don't drop them. A tip: Don't get the clear ones, if you drop one you'll never find it, ever. I suggest white or glow in the dark.

They have a variety pack, start there. If you want to just try one of them, get a screamer.

Cheers, think I'll do that.

I use dunlop jazz IIIs and i love them. they take some getting used to because they are small but they are great picks for pinch harmonics and trem picking

They don't matter that much. Just try different thicknesses to see what you like best. Most people use 1mm-1.14mm, but I use 1.5mm and like those best. The type or brand really makes almost no difference.

Or you just get one of those nifty pick holders that you can strap onto the back of your headstock/body/wherever and cram it full of picks, makes you not look like a retard looking for your pick if you drop it on stage.

Good luck putting V Picks in one of those, hahaha.
