depends a lot on what you're used to

shred is all about coordination, and the only way to be so coordinated as to "shred" is to go with what you are most used to. If you build up your speed on a thin pick, and star shredding with that, then switch to a heavy, you aren't going to be able to shred too easily for a while. it also has a lot to do with wrist strength. If you've got a weaker wrist, thins are probably better.

It's essentially a proven fact that Dunlop Jazz III's are the best pick for accuracy and speed. Almost all of the top name professional virtuosos use them, I use them, anyone who makes this style of play their focus should use them. They are the perfect pick.

a thicker medium pick is good, ive used thins and had 6 snap in a week but 3 mms are just so damn thick that it flies outta ur hand if u start tremelo picking and dont have a majorly tight grip, usually between a.88 and a 1.2 is best because is stiff enough to tremelo pick easily but thin enough to sweep pick without to much trouble

Not saying the Jazz III isn't a great pick (though I don't use it personally), this:

is bullshit.

Anyway, I don't like the sound you get with Jazz III's and they're way too small for me. Dunlop Tortex 1.14mm for me.

Gypsy Jazz picks are ridiculous for lead work, because gypsy jazz tends to have said ridiculous lead work.

I use Jazz III. I find they're good for shred, and, erm, jazz. You can get Jazz III XL which is bigger if you find them too small, which quite alot of people do, i've read some people find it hard to strum with the smaller ones (i don't personally) but hey, in the end it's what you prefer, though i recommend a heavier pick rather than a lighter one for shredding.

I bet the answer lies in the shred forum.

Don't tell me what can be done, either.
