Whichever you like best. For me, medium.

I know it's each to their own, but I hate strumming with a medium gauge pick.

I have been told that Soft flexible picks are best for strumming ....

Buy a selection of thicknesses of picks from very thing to very thick and see whcih you like, best.

I bought a load of picks buy differnt manufacturer's of differnt thicknesses and found the sort of thickness I like and the make and model I like best.

Having said that for acoustic work I like finger picking. :-)

Any way I hope that this helps.

Also depends what sound you're after, if you want lots of string/pick noise, then go for the thinner ones, if you want your acoustic to really jump out at you, heavy strings (I use 13s) and a heavy pick (1.5mm) work for me.

initially it's usually easier to use light picks for strumming an acoustic. I recommend you use a slight heavier pick as this will help you further down the road. It's also a bit easier to hit just single strings in the middle of strumming with a heavier pick

On acoustic, I use a gauge somewhere between a light and a medium - I think it's about .86mm. If I'm doing less chord strumming and more of a lead part, I'll use 1mm tortex (the blues). I like the solid attack you get. It also helps that I use the blues for my bass playing too... saves on carrying too many kinds in your pocket during a gig

Light picks, ones that bend easily.

Starting out I used thinner picks because my striking technique was young and inexperienced. Now that I'm much more developed, I play with at least 1mm because the sound quality, control, and volume you can get from a thicker pick is incredible. I wouldn't nessicarily start out that thick, maybe mediums, because you could break a string if you're not doing it correctly.
