    the best plectrum for lead and rhythm are of different types for me

    for rhythm on acoustic the best is thin plectrums .5 to .7 mm kind of percussive sound when u strum

    for lead i have tried a few kinds but the best is as suggested in a few videos the jazz picks small and a bit pointed for better attack. the jazz picks are pretty small so give better control but are a bit difficult to strum ( for me atleast and i am a beginner so may be with time the control will be better ). these are like 1.5 to 2 mm picks.
