Hey i was just wondering what picks do you use when your shreddin' because i found it hard using normal picks but my friend told me to try it with his 3mm stubby and it was alot easier. So what do you use?

Hard/thick picks lol. It gives greater control.


Edit: My pick is 1mm and I have great control with it. Depends on preference and you need to find a good hard pick. Buy loads of different types. I have atleast 20+ picks.

Thicker the pick = easier to play for me. I'm no shredder but I've moved from a 0.7mm to a 1mm and I've noticed speed improvemnets.

cool at the moment all i have are loads of fender picks cos i stocked up when i went to new york because it was $3 for 12 which is so cheap

EDIT: i got medium picks by mistake so thats why i find it hard but im going to get some thicker ones tomorrow

Exactly the same for me. Except I've gone up in thickness to a 1.21mm. Far easier to control what I'm doing.

Dunlop Jazz III's. I sand them to a point because I use the sharp edge-side of the pick rather than the flat side. It gives me more precise attack.

I was just out at a music thing and met this bassist and asked him if he had any spare thick picks - he gave me a 4mm pick. I'm playing better with that ( I prefer the sound and can hold it easier ).

Use thick picks it helps against fretbuzz, and don't let anyone talk **** about them by saing they break string more easily.
