I don't shred, but I know Jazz III's would be good for it, and there's probably going to be a million recommendations to use it...

I think lots of people like the jazz 3 picks. I just got some yesterday and they are small but once you get used to the size they are definitely versatile. For me its easier to play faster and do pinch harmonics with them easier.

jazz 3..the black ones though, they last longer and have better friction on the string..

sextuplets at 180?

like 6 notes per bleep of the metronome at 180 bpm? like 18 notes per second?

isnt that impossible? or am i real noob at shredding

seems pretty ridiculous, are you sure you mean sextuplets at 180? if i recall the record for speedpicking is like below 230 at sixteenth notes, and your sextuplets would be equivalent to sixteenth notes at 270bpm? hmm.. just doesnt add up

i think it'd be more like 16ths at 270.

but it's nowhere near impossible.

Just in case you can't be bothered to follow the link the guy who's the fastest on that list clocks in at 33 nps and a lot of the people on it hit 19 nps with little problem.

Dunlop Tortex 1.14mm.
The teardrop shape and thickness make them incredible effective.

If they're good enough for Trooch, they're good enough for me.

Also, they are just so damn small and precise. If God ever made a tiny piece of plastic, it was the fockin' Jazz III

I have one
Well the thick plastic replica that came with the D movie soundtrack. I highly doubt you could play anything with it seeing as its gotta be 5mm+ thick with no edge

I've been trying out a number of different picks lately and I picked up some Jazz IIIs. Although I can't play that fast they did offer tighter control while playing fast. Using them however will not turn you into a shredder magically.
#23
i dont "shred" but i can play fast. i use dunlop tortex 1.0 or 1.14. i find the tone from the smaller picks like the jazz picks give a thin sound while picks like the ones i use give a rounder fuller sound. the sharper smaller picks are suposed to make it easier to go fast but i never noticed much of a difference. i like the feel of the tortex better actually.

and the next link from that thread says it actually turned out to be little more than 17.8 notes per second...

33 notes per second is bull, really is.

btw can you actually do sextuplets in 180 cause thats pretty dam sweet


**** no.

fastest ive seen petrucci get to was summit like 16th notes at 210 bpm about and gilbert with sextuplets at about 132 bpm.

but thats beside the point. jazz III rule.

Depending on what is closer, a Jazz 3 or a stubby 3m...

Jazz 3s are fast as ****!

And great for Pinch Harmonics!

nothing better than a 3mm purple stubby

Since when were Petrucci and Gilbert the be-all end-all of speed? Try checking the rest of the list.

Good damn song.

I can't stand jazz III's though, I don't see why everyone loves them. They kill my pinch harmonics .

It's all in the feeling of them. I hated them when I first tried them out - I couldn't strum without hurting my hand, I couldn't hit the strings, I could barely pick to save my life. After about a week of trying they just became completely natural, and it became even easier to hit pinch harmonics than ever before.

yes but there are other people on that list several of which get speeds of over 20nps and 13 on there that get higher than 18nps.

the speeds you're talking about aren't anywhere near impossible.

I like Jazz III at times, very fast and precise picks, but currently I've got the Dunlop Tortex sharps - plenty small and also plenty fast, damn nice picks too. After a bit of acclimatisation you become at one with Jazz IIIs. I hate going back to big picks, so imprecise.
