I use 2mm thick picks.

Sometimes really thin ones like .52mm for some nice open acoustic strumming.

I use a pick called " Hot Licks " . It's made of solid copper.

Extra Thin-.005
Thin - .006
Lt Med - .007
Medium - .008
Heavy - .009
Ex Heavy -.010

They come three in a pack for about $6.50, I use .009 They have great controll and you can get a lot of cool sounds from these picks. They play better when the tip wears down rounder. When a pick does not bend the better controll you have of playing fast leads.
You can order them from " GUITAR CENTER " they have to look them up in thier pick catalog book.
There is also a pick called a " Key Stone " Which I know a bounch of Heavey Metal Player sware by. it's stone that is very rounded at the tip. Great for rolling that pick around the strings. Cost alot more. What I remeber over $10.00 a pick. but last for ever if you don't lose it.

HotLicks
Dunlop Mfg. Inc Box 846 Benicia, CA 94510 U.S.A

You Might want to give it a try. Like I say once the pick wears down a bit. The faster the picking. A pick will last me around a year depending how much I play.

Interesting. I've never heard of a solid copper pick. I'll check them out and see what they're like. Thanks.
