Topic: What brand and thickness picks do you use?
It's something I never really thought about until now, I basically picked a pick on feel when I started learning the guitar and that what that, I did try a few different brands and thicknesses and eventually settled for the Dunlop Tortex, .50mm being the easiest for me to grip, I sometimes use a .80mm Tortex one too. I ended up buying loads of the internet.
I've had a few different Dunlop picks here so I just started experimenting. I tried some grey Dunlops, the ones with a bit of a raised grip at the thick end. Now the .60mm grey one bends a lot easier than the Tortex .50mm which surprised me a little and it gives a dull, smooth sound which I don't particulalry like. I'd rather the crisp sound I get with the Tortex where you can hear the picks hitting the individual strings as I strum?
Are there generally rules about the type of picks you should use for solo's, strumming, loud, quiet etc..
I often like to use the side of my thumb to play along alone quietly.
