Shallow picking for tremolo (fast as possible) and deeper picking for rhythms, that seems like common sense to me.

Thank you guys for the advice. As I thought most would argue for a one-pick-all-the-time technique. I have no doubt that this is theoretically better, if I will ever practically master it is a different question of course.



These are called "stubby" right? Looks cool, gonna check them out.
Regarding your comment, that it forces you to play more accurately, I've experienced the same with the 206; because of it's tip-shape, there are more possibilities of how it can hit the string(s), logically, you have to differentiate more to play precise.
It also doesn't really allow this "minimal-action" technique that some shredders propagate. I tried this for a while with the Jazz III, but came to the conclusion that it unnecessarily hinders flexibility and dynamics, and you can still play fast enough without it.

The normal stubby seems the be for bass guitar, judging from Thomann.
This is a "Stubby Jazz", available in 1, 2, 3 mm. Pic seems to be the 3 mm version, that's a little too much imo.

I love string-wrecking bass picks, it's all I use. Of course, I'm a bassist

Bassists with picks smell bad.

Additionally, Tortex 1.14s ftw. Went to Jazz IIIs for ages, then went back and can't remember why I stopped using 1.14s originally. Gonna look at some of the XL IIIs, they seem pretty nice.

Also, Tortex sharps, the real pointy ones. Anyone like them?

Stubbies are good picks. The problem is they wear out very, very fast.
