Pick buying Guide Most teachers recommend that you use a medium to heavy gauge pick, it allows for greater pick control so we would recommend you choose something in the 0.7-1.0mm range. If you use heavier strings you might want to try a heavier size (1.0-1.2mm) .

So what is the best guitar pick to use a for a beginner ? 

Most teachers recommend that you use a medium to heavy gauge pick, it allows for greater pick control so we would recommend you choose something in the 0.7-1.0mm range. If you use heavier strings you might want to try a heavier size (1.0-1.2mm) 

We have three basic types of materials in our guitar picks

Celluloid - These look great but can be very slippery if you sweat a lot. 

Nylon - These last longer than celluloid and have better grip

Tortex or Delrin - These last the longest 

At the end of the day these are just a guide and each persons pick is a personal choice, so grab a few different gauges and see which one works for you.
