So,I was using Dunlop Tortex Wedge picks (0.88 and 0.50) for 5 months now (since I bought electric guitar) and I was pretty much satisfied with them.But when I play some challenging parts (like Master Of Puppets solo or the machine gun guitar on One),my pick is prone to slip a little bit,just enough to ruin everything.Also,it is a little to big for me,so I can't get a perfect full grip on it,I was thinking on changing it with either Tortex Standard or Tortex Jazz (I really like the material of Dunlop Tortex).Anyone has any experience with this two pick and Wedge one?It would help me if there is some smaller,easier to grip pick for me so I could get a full control of it.

I always use Tortex Sharp picks personally. I never have trouble with them.

Take something sharp and make crosshatch pattern on the pick. You dont have to cut all the way thru. Just give the blade a little bit of an angle so it will raise the plastic a little. Do it on both sides and see how it does.

The sharpness of the tip.

Jazz IIIs are the pointiest.

I think they get progressively thicker though, but not by much.

Now when you say "crosshatch", how do I cut on the pick like that? Which way?

That kind of pattern. Like a noughts and crosses (or tic tac toe) board.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Dime scored Xs on to his picks. The Jazz picks are different in gauge by what color they are Red is medium Blacks are heavy.

The black Jazz III are awesome but a little small for me i like the Jazz XLs

You could just get some standard picks. They seem to work really well for most guitarists.

I always used Tortex .73, and I like them, but a few days ago I found a black Jazz III over in my rehearsal room...Well, now I understand... The thing is really amazing, and I don't even play metal like almost everyone else who praises them here. I'm thinking of swithing to Jazz's now.
all the world's indeed a stage and we are merely players
