I have been playing for about a year and I was wondering if there was a difference (other than thickness) between different types of picks
yeah, it's like everything else. You can find some that just feel right to you, I never really liked any picks until I found Dunlop big stubbies. There are a lot of different kinds just play around until you find something you like.

Reminds me of that drunkard who ran out of beer... he was so desperate, he drank furniture polish.

He came to a horrible end... but a beautiful finish.
the thin picks or really flexy ones are good for strumming
then i use a medium for picking individual
Theres no right or wrong pick to use. Use what feels best. I personally like Jazz 3's or medium picks...
Jazz III's are what I prefer. Just go buy a shitload of picks, like, a whole bunch, and then see what you like best.
