Howdy; i've been a fairly long time user of the black Jazz 3 picks from Jim Dunlop whilst being into shred and lead guitar, but now i've started to move towards a more musical direction involving chord playing and less of a need for super accurate sweeping in what I want to do, which of course the sharp tip of the jazz 3 lends itself poorly

So can anyone recommend a pick to try that is both small (Going back to tortex standards etc just feel like paddles now) but easy to use with both chords and lead? Opeth could be a good example of the stuff I'm mostly into

heres a blend of jazz III and tortex

i find chord playing is very easy with these but they have the feel of tortex picks and are slightly duller tipped than jazz IIIs

My advice is to buy a few of every kind of pick you can get your hands on. They're cheap and are the easiest way to change your tone and outlook on the instrument. Right now, I'm using a 2mm jazz pick from www.picksandstones.com. It's a little pricey, but it's hand made, gorgeous, and will last a lifetime. I can't tell you how many hours of play I've put on it and it, and it's still absolutely without wear.

It plays like liquid, almost like the shoulder of a pick, but with a much stronger attack. It's the best of both worlds IMHO. I have some demos of this pick posted on youtube. Just search "picks stones" and you can catch em. And no, I don't work for the company which is comprised of just one guy.
