What kind of picks do you like to use? I prefer extra heavy 2mms.

Run around the city jacking off in random places... and when you cum, jump out at people and yell "SURPRISE!" Then walk away calmly as if nothing had happened. That's what I would do, anyway.

#6
how can you guys stand anything over .88?!?!?!?!

I use Dunlop Nylons .73

those are the only picks ive used for 6 years.

I like them as thin as possible because I like the sound they make when I strum really fast. Otherwise I just use my fingers.
Pero la cosa que me gusta mas es panochita,

Fender Mediums.

What does that relate to mm wise?

Note: never buy Fender California Clears. They will be destroyed as you are playing and leave a bunch of red crap on your guitar.

Fender clear heavys, granted I have to wear down the edges a bit with something first, but after that they're the best I ever used

.....If Fender DID buy out Jackson, Im quitting guitar and music. Would hate to see the same model of a jackson, the Jackocaster, sold every year with little or no change.

listen to RideTheAnger, he is wise beyond his years.

A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music

why is it that everyone uses like 84375755758mm picks?? seriously Im confused about this...someone explain why you prefer to use 3mm picks.
#39
I use Green Dunlop Tortex .88mms... however I think I'm going to switch to a slightly thinner kind. Maybe .73?
#40
i dont know why i use thick picks....i have size 9 strings and i HATE picks that can bend
thick is the way to go.....maybe it depends...i play punk music....alot of strumming......
its easy to strum with
and its easy to play a solo
IT MAKES EVERYTHING EASY
