What types of pick do you use in terms of thickness, shape and material, what type do you consider best for your favorite music style and why?

Yeah, I'm likin' those, too. I graduated from the 2.0's recently. A thin pick just feels wimpy to me now.

I'm a big fan of the cool 1.0(the yellow ones). But I've also got a saga golden gate when I'm really trying to sound old-timey.

every moment has a song that fits; it''s just sometimes you gotta write it yourself

I don't know what you really call it....it is a green, Dunlop U.S.A ---1.5mm pick of some type (its got a drawing of an alligator snout on it). I think I've got about 3 of them left. I usually find a pick that I like and, after I've sanded it to the shape I desire, I'll drill a couple of small holes thru the center of the pick. (I sweat really bad when I play and I find that these small holes keep the pick from "spinning around" in my fingers or (better yet) me dropping the dang thing. I've also got a couple of those Golden Gate picks ready to go, but haven't started using them much.....(I don't play often...it's an old age thing..hehe)

Fender Heavy or Taylor Heavy. They are exactly the same pick apart from the name and color.

Wegen Bluegrass 1.0 (black). Why this one, because after buying at 1 (and sometimes packs of 10)) of every pick on the planet, my Martin D-18 sounds best (to me) with the Wegen. No "pick" noises, no brittleness or dullness.
