i use these picks from jim dunlop for pick slides.you use the crevice between the bumps for sliding and it sounds cool.you can also use the different sides for different sounds when you pick.theyre called tortex fins.

yea i use those as well for the pick slide in crazy train only and the i drop it and play with fender mediums

for everything else i use fender medium calif. clears or fender lights cailf. clears.

for me the faster the song has to be played the thinner the pick i use.

i do not pick slide with lights though. i pick slide with heavys and the dunlops in the pic above

try angling the pick so that the sliding part of the pick is at about 45 degrees to the string while applying pressure to the string and sliding...make sure to catch the tiny "grooves" of the string while performing the slide so that you get the high-pitched engine like sound you frequently hear in pickslides
