Topic: Picks (or plectrum) - hard or soft?
I had guitar lessons about 8 years ago. My guitar teacher drilled into me the fact I should use the hardest pick I could find, therefore making anything else easy to play with - this included playing electric and acoustic.
Anybody have any comments on this? A friend of mine had lessons and his teacher told him to use the softest pick and work up to a hard pick?
For acoustic guitar I am not sure I like the softer picks as you can hear the pick strike the strings a lot more - so you end up hearing the pick noise on the string more than the note you are playing....
