I play death metal/metalcore. I use 2mm Dunlop Stubbies, and after about a week, they're worn down to a nub. I hate playing with a worn down pick but I also hate that awkward gritty feeling a brand new one has during playing.
For those of you playing the same genre, how often do you go through picks? Any suggestions for that gritty, grating feel the new ones have, or do you just have to deal with it for the first hour of playing?
That happens after a week?!
