After talking to a fellow guitar player about pick selection, I was shocked to learn that he did not know the difference between plastic and nylon picks. I accidently bought a nylon pick a long time ago and quickly realised that these picks last virtually forever(they are usually lost before wearing down). I'm curious to know what types of picks you all choose to use or if you even knew there was a difference.

I prefer heavy picks and I find that plastic ones bend a bit more, which is what I like.

They do wear out quickly, but who cares? They only cost a dollar.

I'm homeschooled because I got tired of the corporate conformist administration.

So I have a pretty crime free school, unless i decide to kill someone.

I once broke a G-String while fingering an A minor.

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

You shouldve put more thought in that poll. Nylon is a plastic.

And i like Jazz III's
