    Orange Tortex for Strumming -especially on Acoustic.

    Green Tortex for Shred.

    Yellow Tortex for Hybrid.

    Dunlop Primetone Durex medium .73 or .88 for most everything.

    Mine are Jazz III size made out of delrin, like tortex picks. I get them custom made online. I don't like to get attached to any particularly expensive picks at the rate I use them.

    I use a .88mm thick Cat's Tongue....
    Very grippy, hard to lose. It doesn't turn in my dried out, arthritic fingertips.

    I guess that confirms my suspicions that neither Gibbons or May shaped their picks. I can totally hear it. I've experimented with a bunch of different coins and found that I like the shaped 5 colone coin pick the best for electric because it gave me the most vicious attack while still being comfortable. The 5 colone is about the size of a dime so its kind of like a modified jazz pick I guess.

    I try to play bass with fingers unless the song is a cover that really calls for pick. Is usually play guitar with a pretty hard one, Dunlop 207 held sideways, but for bass I use a medium, for the tone more than feel.

    For bass? Heavies. For softer attack, the orange tortex is nice, I believe Flea uses them when he uses a pick. But, most of the time I play bass with my fingers.

    For guitar I like mediums mostly.

    What kind of pick do you use?

    I've been using a quarter pick. Not a full quarter but a quarter shaped into a pick.

    I know Brian May uses a coin but I don't know if its shaped or not.

    I've been using coins for about 20 years since the first one I made and tried. I use a 5 colone coin from Costa Rica for electric guitar and a regular Dava pick for acoustic.
