Surely you don't switch midway through a song. Are you talking about when you decide to go Van Halen and Impress all the lady's! wink.gif


Sometimes I do, but during gigs I use the thinner one. Jazz is better for control and articulations so I use it for practice at home more.

I am using a 2mm stone pick, I never really liked thin and flexible picks, they take away a lot of your attack and also make your sound more thin, and this stone that my pick is made of offers exactly the sound that I love.


Marcus,

If you don't mind me asking where do get such a pick?

I use Dunlop tortex 1.14 picks now.

I used to use big stubby 3mm picks but they wear out too quick with fast playing on the low fat strings!The thicker a pick the easier(and louder)your leads become but I find there is a compromise in ones rythm playing with less thick picks playing better-and seeing as most of the time i'm not playing leads it makes sense to go with a tiny amount of flex in the pick

The tortex picks also never slip out of my grasp,and unlike the thicker big stubbys dont leave a pick impression on my thumb and 1st finger after a few hours playing!With the big stubbys my pick grip was a lot harder,with the thinner tortex picks I hardly apply any pressure,in fact it doesnt even feel like I'm holding a pick

Over 1mm works fine,under that and you can get a lot of flex

I use the MURIS pick! It's really comfy..

+ my jam friend agrees with me there's something supernatural to it..
