I am using John 5 Signature picks.They are great,theyre hard to wear out,Ive been using the same pick for 3 months and I have not had a problem.

I love my tortex 0.60...might be too thin for you tho...try 0.72 ones or whatever they are. (yellow coloured I think).

3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.

A local band got a pick deal and while think they have **** music they have great picks. They dont slip when your hand starts to sweat, they wear away about three times slower than anything else i ever used, and theyre cheap. Heavy gauge.

umm... I got Dunlop big stubby's... the 2.0 mm ones... I bought a few a year ago and I'm still using the first one
#7
I usually buy the musicians friend brand mediums. Sure they arent the best, but I buy like 120 of em for like $50 and they last forever if you use em for guitar. My last 120 shipment ran out cuz my bass player was using them and they break easily on bass strings.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

dunlop tortex 1.14 (the purple ones) are fantastic, I used to use thin flexy picks but it just doesn't feel or sound the same as a nice solid pick

haha.

Well try out the Dunlop Tortex's and see if you like those better than the Jazz's that you use. I use the 1.14 tortex.

Most of us don't have the pick that comes with it, so why not just go to the store and try a Jazz III, a Tortex or a Tortex Jazz?

Used to use Dunlops until I found Brain picks which are fantastic and have a way better grip. Use the red (.73) and black (0.88) ones. Then I found Dava picks (que: heavenly angel music) and use those pretty much all the time now. I really don't care about how long a pick lasts but if thats a concern for you then know that these are actually the most durable of any I've had.

Just a question: do some of you seriously only have like one or two picks and you need to worry about how long they last...? Don't mean to offend anyone but seriously, even the most expensive ones are like 1 or 2 bucks each, with most of them being under a buck. Spend some of your allowance and stock up!

SNARLING DOG BRAIN PICKS, i will preach these until the day i die. I use the heavy 1.14 orange picks, the best tone you can get from a pick in my opinion and they last forever. The on them is amazing as well.
#19
Jazz III's. None other. Maybe it's because my store gives them to me for free, but still.

This is what I did to find a pick that I liked, buy one of every kind that you think you might like, then take them home and try them all out. And see what you like.

What to do with the extras that you didn't like, give them to someone that needs a pick.
