First off, aside from your talent, I found your overall grasp of music to be awe-inspiring when I first joined this site and as I grew as a player, you have been probably my most profound influence. Not so much for style but in methods and knowledge.

My question:

I read that you like to use a thick, or heavy guitar pick. I prefer to do the same and have been using Gator Grip 1.5 MM.

I was curious to what you like you use when you are playing on the electric, and if you use a thinner pick when playing acoustic. Recommendations would be great.

Hi and thanks for your kind words, appreciate it. smile.gif

You have it right tho, most of the time I prefer thick pick for electric (even 2 mm)
and thin pick for acoustic, approx 1mm but sometimes even thinner.
When I say acoustic I mean nylon acoustic or classical mainly
since I play it pretty often on gigs, I use steel acoustic in studio only atm.
And this gauges are for live purpose since you cannot switch gauge
on stage that quickly so I like to keep same pick all the time.
But in the studio I use many gauges, both for acoustic and electric,
it depends of what kind of tone that I'm after, it's it rhythm part or heavy lead,
funk, blues, pop etc.

Whatsoever there are NO rules when it comes to pick and gauge,
I would recommend you to try as many different picks and gauges
and see what works best for you in certain situations.
