I use a 3mm dunlop big stubby pick... Im quite fast But would I gain speed faster with thinner?

Does too thick pick slow me down?

It all comes down to what you prefer. Try some other pics and see if you like them more. If you don't just keep using this one.

It may get a bit more clumsy if its super thick, although the Dunlop Stubbys are 3mm thick but have a pointed end and are great to play with

Big Stubbies are the best pick ever! You can shred with them and sweep. If you ask me they are much more stable and don't flap about so much, so in effect are much easier to play with and give more control. That's you my OPINION though, it's personal preferance

I normally play with just a normal Fender medium, but when I play a song like Cliffs of Dover or anything like that, I use one of those thiiick and small Dunlops

Behold...the Arctopus are obviously music. I don't see how anyone could say they're not music compared to many modern and post-modern composers. That being said, I think B...tA are terrible.

a lot of people who play fast use a thick pick so no it wont slow you down. 3mm sounds a little much though lol. but i doubt it will slow you down. its all about what you are used to. i find thinner picks slow me down because im used to bigger ones. i dont use 3mm but i dont go under 1.
#11
i used them and they dont slow you down, i was my fastest when i used em, but have since switched due to other reasons, theyre good picks, keep with em

+1. Even though I'd suggest checking some other picks out, because what floats my boat may not float yours.

I didn't think they had metal in the 1790's

I go back and forth between Dunlop Gator Grip 1.5mm and Big Stubbies 2mm. They are actually the same size, The Big Stubbies are very hard to hold onto, especially because my hands sweat a lot, but are really good for sweeps. It's weird, I will prefer one of them one hight, and the next night, I won't be able to use them.

AS far as getting a different size and it affecting your speed, it's up to the guitarist. I used to use thin picks, but now I can't even use a pick under 1mm in thickness.

Just look at Malmsteen, he uses 1.5mm picks, and he is anything but slow. He said in an interview he uses the thick picks because of their stiffness, wich is the same reason I do. I don't like to have my pick givving udner the pressure of my picking, I want it to only move when I move my hand.
