i used fender thin picks....but they kept breaking on me........so i tried out fender medium picks and they kept breaking my high e string.......so im stuck.....i cant find a pick that wont break on me or break my strings.....i tried out sum pick with a C on it that had grip and i liked the grip idea because i play fast but i broke my low e string again in a week......i use dr strings so that cant be the problem...do u know a good pick that would solve my problem?? thanks

You must fucking attack your guitar if you can break picks and strings like that. Cool down a bit, eh?

You know you're a bassist when you think a guitar is just some freaky type of short scale, six string bass.

That's what I was thinking. The only time I broke a pick was when I was bending it when I was bored.

I've honestly never broken a pick. And regards strings, you mean your high e, the thinnest one, right? Who the hell breaks their low Es that easily. Sounds like you need to chillax a bit when you're playing.
Try a reeeally thin one? I find it hard to play hard (hehe) with those so it might keep you from breaking things.

Yes, Dunlop Tortex picks own. I like the .88mm greens and the .88 Wedge Whites. Seriously consider them.

Goddamned right....I'm using a .50 Fender and a .73 MM Tortex...the Tortex blows it out of the water.

I agree with those that say calm down a bit, that would help a bit, and if you're goin that hard then you definitely shouldn't use thins, just too flimsy, I use pretty much any fender med pick, they seem to do the job for me.
#14
wow u must play hard because i started using fender heavy picks a month ago and havent broken a string yet

I use Fender Heavy Picks, and .011's on my guitars. And I have no problem with breakage on either part.

I use 0.10's strings and fender heavy and ultra heavy picks and I haven't got any problem.
#21
dude you have to be attacking the strings when you play. ive been using fender lights (the thinest pick they make) for 13 years and i have never broken one pick or one string with them. so your just playing real hard. dont hold the pick real tight and try to pluck the strings for attack them.

lol i normally use the 1.14 purple ones, and somtimes ill use the dunlop black one wiht the aligator on it, i think its a 2.0, its crazy hard impossible to break even wiht a saw or a knife

when your string break, are u bending em? using the tremollo? both?

i always go for the lightest strings i can get (i tune in c# and like the flexibility... wouldnt do that with a floyd rose tho)

play with a dunlop .38mm pick... u can literally fold it over itself and it wont break! so u can attack as hard as u want without the ph33r of breaking something or shred as fast as u like (also great for pop'in in some false harmonics)
