Is the type of pick you use important? If so, what's good, what's bad, etc?
personal preference bud. Experiment with different shapes/sizes and thicknesses and see what feels right to YOU.
Honestly. Wtf?

Yes, the type of pick you use is very important.
As far as what's good or bad, you have to decide for yourself. It's all personal preference really.

In the press of every kiss
With your head upon my chest

Where I will annoy you
With every waking breath
Until you, decide to wake up
^No, i disagree, i mean there are some things which are better suited to a harder pick etc, but its mainly personal preference.

Well, most people I know use a heavy pick for solos and stuff. But I use the thinnest pick I can find for both solos and strumming. I like the unique sound of it.
Heavy Picks
In my opinion, none really
Feels like your breaking your strings when your strumming.
Really Light Picks
Awsome for strumming, make a nice clicking noise.
They don't get jammed inbetween strings whne your trying to do alternate picking.
In my opinion, NONE.

yes but the problem with playing fast with a thin pick is it gets flappy and its always a step behind youre hand. and when playing loud and heavy is important they break like crazy.

what you need to do is try out loads of different picks of loads of different types. the main questions you need to ask yourself are;

thick, medium, or thin?
large, medium, or small?
gripped, regular, sharkfin, etc?

when you've tried out loads of different plectrums that between them satisfy all this criteria you should have a good idea what picks you like the most.

A pick can actually make a severe difference in your tone as they all attack differently. You have to find a happy medium between comfort, durability and tone.
