I greatly appreciate the versatility of the medium guitar pick (the orange ones). However, I have recently come to love the heavy picks even more. The crisp sound is just too good for me to let go. It helps a lot that the one that I am currently using is the best color ever (everyone knows that this is green, I’m only saying it for the sake of young children and the color blind).
Also, my mandolin sounds about 4 times better when I use the heavy instead of the medium. I’m just sayin’.
After further comparison, I see that heavy picks are not well suited for playing quietly. Maybe I should just say that I love how different picks give a different sound and stop with that.
