In this lesson, we’re going to get picky about our picks! There are so many kinds, and to help you figure it all out, I’ve broken it down.
There are 3 main variables when it comes to choosing a guitar pick:
3) Material (tone, durability, feel)
For beginners, I recommend a thinner pick, standard size/shape, made of nylon, cellulose or delrin.
If you want to play some leads, I recommend the same pick I use. Dunlop Tortex .88mm (the green ones). I like the powdery feel, they’re thick enough to have control when playing leads and thin enough to get a nice, bright strumming sound.
