Normally, I like these ones:
But for tremelo picking, I like these:
Is this unusual?
Not at all:
I only use the purple Tortex 1.14 (I have at least 100 of them scattered around the house) but I keep trying to ditch it and use my fingers ala Richie Kotzen or Jeff Beck. But I keep finding that certain songs I play require a pick. How Richie plays certain runs with his thumb or index finger is amazing. I have visions of playing a show and using a pick on certain songs and going pickless on others but I've had the vision before and I always have bailed and used a pick for the whole show. I don't know if it's a volume thing or what but I never put down the pick.
For me it is. I don't play with a pick. But if it works for you, God bless.
I started using these several years ago so no need for different picks. I like the nylons the best. YMMV.
I agree; for most things I like a 1.0 or so, but songs that need some speedy strumming or tremelo picking, a .75 works better for me. I started to carry a thinner pick with the regular ones, when we started playing All My Loving, which has crazy fast strumming.
I use a variety for acoustics and feel they exhibit different tones. For electric a Clayton jazz in 1.14mm just seems to work best for me.
I only use a V-Pick Screamer and have for a number of years. Before that is was a Jazz III or a Stubby.
Full disclosure-when I’m noodling on acoustic I might use a Jazz III
“One pick to rule them all!”
Got in a losing fight with a table saw in 2005 and after some nerve surgery on my right index finger I tried every pick that touted its grip. Found these Dava’s and they’ve been all I’ve played up until 4 or 5 months ago.
Lately I’ve been using different pics for different songs or instruments.
I’ve come to appreciate the Jazz III. Never liked them. Even before that bastard table saw took a cheap shot!
Wow! Scary stuff. Glad to hear that you’re still able to play. Take care.
