4 years ago, I bought several different thicknesses. Ended up with .58 Gator Grips. I do some .71s and .96s from time to time too.

i use .58 gator grips as well :) i have changed my pick size so many times i cant even count. its all about how u feel. every1 is different

Yes, there's the Stubby which is small
*shudder* Get the big ones ;)

Whoa! :shock:

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Dunlop Big Stubbi 3mm here (I don't like picks to bend in the slightest

Well my friend, your choice of pick is approximately 6 times thicker than what I use! :shock:

is it bad to be attached to just one pick??

i'm not talking one style or thickness, but ONE pick in particular :shock: :D

i read once that picks should be treated as useless expendables, but it's ok to have a favorite, right? :twisted:

Playing seriously for eight months or so. (I think)

Can hardly leave the house without buying guitar picks. Right now, sitting on my coffee table (which is where I practice, within arm's reach of the table) I've got a couple of big stubbies (used to have a "stubby", but think it may be the rattle in my acoustic, I was always dropping the damn thing) tortexs of all thinknesses, and a bunch of other random things. I use the big stubby almost always for the electric in general, or at least something thick. For the acoustic, it depends on how fast the strum, how "hard" I want to hit it, and, well, whichever one is in plain view from where I'm sitting.

Try everything, and throw what doesn't work away, I say.

best,
Ande

Lately I'm using the small Dunlop's Jazz III. They are comfortable to my fingers and I like its sound.
Discovered them a month ago and fell in love with them. They're like 5 dollars for half a dozen though, which in my opinion is pretty steep for plastic.

I use some Jim Dunlop small pick called: Jazz I, Jazz II and Jazz III

I don't play jazz, but I like those little pick, not too thin and easy to play with :)

I also use regular size pick, mostly 0,88 mm and 1 mm

Perhaps they are more expensive than the others but they are more durable (durable?). I bought it and also a normal Tortex the same day. I've played a lot more with the Jazz III and it is like the first day. The Tortex has the edges "half-rounded".

Use the one which you are most comfortable with. Afterall, the pick is not going to make music for you.

For me it's been between the Dunlop Tortex .88mm pick and the Jazz III.
