I use black jazz 3 picks:



What do you mean when you say you wnat to achieve a loud note? Do you mean an artificial harmonic?

Perhaps you mean that it doesn't sound good when you angle the pick - are you perhaps angling to much, or attempting to play a little too fast?

Hey Kris,
I have the same problem as peterorg54 describes....
and i can go pretty fast with playing the normal way( with that i mean the way that i am used to) but when i angle the pick my finger hits the string too....
and i have another question: should you keep your wrist hand leaning on the guitar or should it be hanging in the air somewhere in front of the guitar?

Thanks,
Lester

I think themain guideline should be to strive for whatever way that allows you to play relaxed and comfortable.

The picking licks which I can play relaxed are the ones I can use when improvising. The other ones are a part of my practice routine... smile.gif

Strive for relaxation - sounds pretty good doesn't it...? smile.gif

I used the Jaz 3's for a bit but im still abit clumbsy so hit my fingers on the strings when playing, I find The Dunlop Nylon picks have the same feel but abit larger.

I play two ways with my pick these days, when I'm doing faster alternate picking I feel its easier to switch to Pavel's fist method with the minimum amount of wrist movement possible, but when I'm doing more rhythmic chords and power chords etc I feel it more comfortable to use the method Kris does in that video.

I cant use the really stubby/really thin plectrums these days - I much prefer 1.14mm dunlops although thin picks helped me out in the beginning to get the wrist movement right!
