How many of you feel that you play way better and your guitar just feels 10x better when you have a pick that has a slight grind against the string. I feel like a have to have this or else it just doesn't sound right. It makes it so I can't stand a pick that's been used to very long at all.

I thought it was about being able to play a lot better while high. Which I would agree on.

The pick thing however. Nah. I use soft picks. Because I like to do a lot of ups/downs strums and I'm afraid the strings just break if I use a hard/thick one.

I could see using the soft pick with strumming. I personally hard rock and metal and a little of a bunch of other things to keep from getting to bored so I like to a have a little grit in my playing.

I play mostly punk/postpunk with mostly clean settings so I really need to use all six strings and therefore be able to quickly and smoothly play through the chords from top - down and up again with as little obstacle as possible.

Different playstyles I guess.

Doesn't really bother me. I hate using large picks, though, unless I'm just strumming chords.

I need a soft pick for acoustic. I find it much easier to strum, keep rythm and play more delicately with them.

I find it easier to play with a medium pick for electric.

And the super big ass bass-pics when I play full chords/accoustic.
I fell asleep on my arm once, scariest thing that ever happened to me. I thought it was kill.

Heaviest picks, lightest strings is an interesting combination. It sounds almost soft and delicate. Not so good for fast playing as the strings get a little hard to control.

Lol, the irony is that I use those too and they still get worn down. strings are 10-42 tuned 1 step down.
EDIT: 10-46

I prefer a heavy pick and do a shitload of strumming. But then I play really aggressively.

I usually do too but I break my strings if I do. And I prefer to do these kind of strums;

Which is easier with a softer and thinner pick imo.
