I use heavy picks the most. My favorites are the green tortex picks and the picks with the blue grippy sandpaper like stuff on it.

The "Heavy" choice only says "1mm"... which to me would rate as Medium-Light.

2mm, sometimes 3mm. I've been resorting to the Dunlop Jazz II's and III's.

okay i really like .88

got some .60 and dont like them, got some 1.0 and they are okay.

i like .88 on acoustic but the 1 is okay

if i use a pick for bass, i got a lot of 2.0 around, but i have an old purple dunlop500 2.0 that i love

i also love my lucky pic, which is hiding in my room, it is a ernie ball from the HOB in New Orleans before katrina, it is a 1 i believe
