Picks are a very personal choice, but the Tortex picks are among the best. Always play with your guage, see what you like.

This is my pick of choice for almost everything. They have a great coating on when new. They also look cool when you throw them to the audience. LOL
They actually hold up far better than most others. It's tough to wear one out.
Ive used these picks as long as i can remember, and Ive played for goin on 23 years. But recently, as i become older and my musical interests shift somewhat (or i think broaden is a better word) the newer Jim Dunlop 'Gel' picks in the Medium Lite guage are quickly becoming my favorite, but this .88 will always be in my case and welcome for use at any time
Price: $0.20 (new)

I agree with the fact that it is heavy enuff to be primarily a rock pick, that atleast to me, is the easiest pick to pull artificial harmonics off of.
I wear these things to hell wouldnt have them, I use the pointy end for rock and solo's, and spin them around and use the round ends for softer passages, i even have some that have permanantly warped over the years, i think that one has been in my pick arsonal for about 10 years, but, usually i lose them in the wash before they wear out.
This is one of the most standard picks made by Dunlop, but I use it for almost all of my overdriven/distorted playing. It's also fine for clean guitar, but you may want to consider something lighter to get a softer feel.

It's a piece of plastic with a nice picture of a turtle on it. :)
Seriously, this a great pick for rock and metal type playing. It delivers a clear, sharp attack that sounds great with some gain.
So far so good. I usually rotate through my collection at random. Some of the lettering has worn off, but other than that they still look and feel new.
