I like Fender Mediums but I CA some sandpaper on it for grip

I don't seem to like any pick that is thicker than the above.

What would make picks more grippy.


Do you mean in your fingers or to grip the strings more? If you mean your finger grip...I mentioned in my above post I glue sandpaper to mine for grip. If you mean to grip the strings, try sanding the end of the pick to rough it up...works great.

The pick gets rough anyway from the constant hitting against the strings.

I find it funny now that some of the picks I have are sanded down so much that I can cut through stuff with the edge.

I personally have several mediums but i prefer extra heavys from fender. thin picks are sucky in so many ways. they break in a matter of seconds and theres no point in using them.
#15
I mostly use thin picks, they really are what found pinch harmonics for me. So I stick to them.

I wouldn't say I hate anything, it just throws me off for a minute or two.

Anything other than red Jazz III's for an electric.

I use a penknife to cut random grooves in the part you hold. Makes them quite a lot grippier i find.
#17
I hate thin picks, and those cheesy "celluloid" picks. I use purple dunlop tortex, and black dunlop gator's, depends on what type of playing I'm in the mood for. When I want searing harmonics, I use a quarter.

i can stand thin and thick picks
thin picks are flimsy and you can't thrash the strings, thick picks have no flexibility, way to stiff for me tastes
i myself use the yellow tortex (those are .78 mm for those who don't know) they have flexibility but are sturdy, best of both worlds i suppose
also i'll use fender medium celluloids on occasion (which means when i receive them as a gift )
#20
Those Giant, thin triangular ones. You know, the ones that are the size of a loonie
\,,/_[><]_\,,/
#22
I just don't like really thin picks, like those white dunlop ones that are so thin you'd do better with a piece of construction paper.

other than that, it's all good, I don't really like those big ole black triangle things, and I hate using quarters or anything with a rough edge for a temporary pic.
#24
Really thick picks

I can't stand more than 1.0.

.36 is doable. .60 is prime choice.

I have played fender picks for years, but as i have been playing in the studio a lot lately i cant hold on to them when i get sweaty, they slip right out of my fingers, only so slightly, but enough to be heard on a recording. my buddy just gave me some gator grips and i think im sold. the reason i never changed to an easier to hold pick is casue i hate picks with bumps and **** on them. gator picks are like real picks but they dont slip for some reason.

oh and thick picks are a must for metal.....

I'm not very picky about picks (err... pun not intended). However, I really don't like any pick that pretty much falls out of my fingers when I'm playing due to their slippery surfaces. Very annoying. Ridiculously thin and thick picks aren't my top choices either.

Naw, are they like that?

I despise nylons and cellelouse picks. I just use 1mm blue tortexs, I dont mind the thicker purple ones or the thinner green ones but anything thinner... yuck. I like dunlop big stubbies for jazz but they seem to slip to much for any agressive music.

Best picks for me I find are .60mm Dunlops. They have awesome grip on them plus, they're not so floppy you can't pick individual strings nicely.

Anything bigger and I can't tremolo Pick atall.

I hate big, normal size ones and thin ones for electric, but I use .7 Nylons on Acoustic. Electric is Black Jazz III.
