it feels easier for me

I hate seeing cute girls topless and what not, it just feels wrong.

i play faster with them but when it comes to sweep picking it feels like my fingers are dead weight holding me back. maybe its cuz the pick is so small. anyone ever use the XL jazz III?
#6
i think the orange tortex dunlops are better for sweeping, but its impossible for me to pinch with them
i use the blue tortex...they are aweum for the shred and pinches are crazy easy with them
so id use those, it doesnt affect sweeping ability
and i can almost do 5 strings at fast speed with them
#7
i use yellow tortex and they are great too, greens are good too but i cant pinch with them, so i stick more with yellows cuz tey allow me to do anything.

i will try the blue one like berys to see what they are like

I use Jazz III's for everything, so obviously I like them for sweeping, but why would it be any harder than any other pick, sweeping is fairly difficult, but if you can sweep well, it souldn't matter what picks you are using.

I hate sweeping, I've practised a bit at it, but it's seems pretty hard to me... I can manage just picking normally at some sweeping parts. I use Jimmy Big Stubby 3mms.

kinda random and has nothing to do with this but Coheed and Cambria's Welcome Home is in Rock Band! i think that's pretty awesome for them, even if i don't play the game. i'd rather play a real guitar, or normal videogames but not a mix of both.

The easiest picks for me to sweep with is the Big Stubby 2.0s. Jazz 3's are pretty easy to sweep with too because they're so direct, have a lot of attack, and aren't bulky.

I can sweep with a 3 mm Big Stubby, so a Jazz probably wouldn't be any harder. I like 'em big.

Yeah man, i've had a bit of trouble with em too but not sweeeping pretty much in general. they feel too thick, i've now transfered to Dunlop H3's (the green ones, .80something mm's) they're not as thick and bulky as the Jazz's, kinda smoother too IMO. try those, i had to try lots of different picks ever since i switched over to the smaller ones as opposed to the normal sized ones. know what i mean. anyways hope that helps

Isn't it funny how different picks do that?

I use Wedgie picks for rthym, and Jazz III's for lead, and it makes a normal pick weird for me. I always feel like I'm holding it wrong.
