Great for rhythm. What's not to like?
Yeah I found tens really hard to articulate on when I went to electric after learning on acoustic.
Same with how some can't play big frets after getting used to small frets.
Developing more control is hard work but not doing the hard work is in the end even harder.
Years ago when I tried nines I could not control my pick well enough without the feel of the strings resisting.
A year or so ago when I tried them again due to my hands being older and beat up, it turned out they were also more experienced hands that could control pick movement better and nines were no problem.
Not to say heavier strings are bad, just that we can learn to do whatever we set our minds to.
Cept maybe play like Paul Gilbert...
Slippery slope, bro.
Thin picks. Jeez. Next you’ll be complaining about the weight of your Tele. The weight of your amp. You’ll want to play sitting down. Maybe play the Kazoo. Or wear a scarf while you sing. Get help man!
So far so good, there!
My Tele is an unprecedented 9.2# and my amp is a tweed Bassman!
But my knee replacement rehab has been very tough...I'm looking at the possibility of having to sit down for my next couple gigs!
I might have to use heavier strings and picks for those gigs.
I've used thin picks for years. I like Black Ice .55mm or Dunlop nylon .73 . I have some purse ideas for you.....
Grew a (mostly gray) beard this fall, figure when I shave it off I'll look 20 tears younger and will go back to tens.
Or at least .0095s!
I use 11s on my electrics, 13s on my dread. I still like thin picks sometimes.
Thickness doesn’t matter, but the pick color should match your nail polish.
