I tried these and much preferred the dunlop tortoiseshell ones. The only issue with those is I was shredding them in no time. Eventually changed back to flat picks but can still use a thumbpick on acoustic just fine.

Mike Dawes is. Makes them sound incredible.



And here's one just for you, Jeremy.
Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

I don't relate to this music at all but I love that these kids exist. It's crazy to think what they might produce over their lifetimes. Awesome stuff!

Yeah its impressive technically but I'm finding less notes with more feeling gives me more of an emotional response!
