ok i went out and bought some new picks today. i used to use medium dunlops (whatever guage they are) but today i bought some 1mm 2mm and 3mm. i usually play metal and stuff but my question is this are these picks too thick? i was having problems with my old (the medium) picks flexing too much.

Get the Dunlop Jazz III picks. They are very strong and hard, small, and have sharp points. Great for shredding and metal. I just got a pack yesterday and I love them!

I prefer a medium pick because heavy ones get caught up on strings when I try to play anything fast.

i like the little pointy jazz picks, great for speed when your shredding, my teacher also says that they build control, w/e they kick ass

are there any good picks that can go both ways, like from playing solos and shredding to playing chords without having to switch picks or something

its ll down to personal prefernce really. Though you do get more bite out of the strings with thicker picks

Tortex Jazz picks (the itty bitty green ones) are damn good and give me great accuracy.

the thick picks are great for playing individual notes but suck IMO for playing any chords, i use the yellow .73 dunlop wutevers that are the normal shape, i forgot the name

these ones?


if so, then yeah - i use the same ones. i used to play with 3mm two years ago or so but this is what i use now. besides, how can you strum a chord with a 2mm pick?

I personally like Big Stubby's, when I first saw one at a store I just thought I'd get one and maybe try it out and never ended up using it untill it was the only pick in my bag, and since than I just love using really thick picks, theres something about them. It's all preference.

well i got some of those stubby 2mm picks by dunlop and i can strum chords ok but i keep having problems with accidentally doing harmonics when i dont mean too. usually they sound pretty cool when they happen but they happen alot. is that something i should get used to when using thick picks??
