    Seriously? Pick whichever plectrum you feel comfortable with (feel and sound). Just don't pick a fat bass pick like I did once, back in the day. Or then again, who knows. There aren't any rules.

    And yer welcome ^^

    Good price, congrats on the buy.

    For beginner rhythm guitar a very light pick is usually recommended... If you plan to concentrate on chords make sure you get a very light pick. For lead get a heavier pick you are comfortable with. So basically buy one pick as light as possible and one heavy pick you feel comfortable with. Dunlop picks are supposed to be "good", but I haven't tried them so don't know what's good about them.

    Best of luck

    Congrats n jst enjoy d pain n pleasuer of learning guitar
    i hv enjoyed my days with my F310 n still i practice more on it dan my LL6
    keep it clean use carefully d outer polish is quite soft
    talking abt picks if u hv oily skin or fingers den u surely need a good investment on picks
    jst blindly pick "sure picks" frm planetwaves dey r rubber moulded n grips well in ur finger
    i choose medium gauge means medium hard dey r best choice

    I have used some Dunlop picks and i must say they are quite good. The nylon or ultex one's specially are good. I personally use a Jim Dunlop Tortex 0.60 mm for acoustic playing, or if the need be a slightly thicker Jim Dunlop Tortex 0.73mm Black. Picks thicker than this are not needed on an acoustic i think. Ofcourse it is my opinion others may differ but in the end it is just what YOU feel comfortable with. For electric playing I usually use an Ultex pick great attack, negligible wear. But my ultimate electric guitar pick is the Dunlop Jazz 3 Ultex/Nylon. It is small in size but has a great tip and is great for pinch harmonics and stuff. But I can see from your post you intend to play acoustics so i'd suggest you what guitardoctor suggested start off with a thin pick like 0.30mm or 0.40mm nylon they are really thin and flexible and have a lot of give. And as you develop your picking skill move on to a Tortex 0.60mm. If you have excessively sweaty hands and the pick keeps slipping out of your hand try the Dunlop Gator Grip ones, they have an excellent grip.

    The OP seems to be a beginner and playing an acoustic guitar, i wouldnt recommend something as thick as the jazz 2 or 3 for acoustic playing, for electrics it is excellent especially the ultex one but it is really hard to find. Moreover i feel beginners should start with a thin pick and gradually move on to a thicker one, to my ears anything thicker than 0.80mm on acoustic sounds dead.

    I use 0.81 mm and love the tune of it. Just a personal preference friend.
