Santanu Posted December 15, 2011 Report Share Posted December 15, 2011 This might sound funny to most of you, but I've purchased new picks after a several years.. might be 4 or 5 years. Before that I have only one pick which I got with my first guitar - it was an acoustic. Yesterday I've purchased several colorful picks from the local market and now I have certain questions with them.. 1. The new picks are mostly .46mm (as it's written). My old only pick was of .72mm Jim Dunlop one. What is the difference between these mm(s) as I didn't found any size differences between .46 or .72! Or the difference between these 2 sizes can't be measure in open eyes except scales (?) 2. Immediately after playing with a new .46mm pick I amazed! It was giving me a very well grip over picking! It felt good! But after a several minutes of play I starts feeling a very rough friction with the string and pick while picking. It was after sometime feeling me I'm trying to tear off the strings with that pick. It was feeling very rough indeed. So my question is - a. Is this usual behavior with the use of new pick (?), or, b. It could damage my guitar's strings (?) This friction I can't remember anymore with my past .72mm pick. Would be great if hear your opinions or advises or suggestion. Thank you. :) Cheers. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
