Does it matter how thick the picks are you use. I can find some ranging from .50mm to 2mm and I havent a clue which to buy.


Buy some Jim Dunlop 0.73's or some fender medium's.

Just standard heavy picks is what I use for acoustic. Mediums and lights bend too much.

I started out playing on an electric first, I didn't notice anything different when I picked up an acoustic. I mean I notice the string were way thicker, but it wasn't any harder for me to play than my electric. I guess thats just me.

I haven't met a person yet that started on electric that can play clean on an acoustic within the first year of picking up an acoustic. It may not be harder to hit the right notes (a fretboard is a fretboard) but to play clean w/ no muffled out strings or buzzing.....that's hard.
