Can be spotted during Green Day's rig rundown. Also used by Jason White, as seen in the same video. Green Day's picks are custom-designed, in some cases with the face of the guitar player using it (e.g, Billie Joe's has his face on his pick). "The Dunlop Tortex .73s... this is the first time we went for the multi-color imprint pick. So... thank you Dunlop."more
On top of [Noel Gallagher's amp](http://equipboard.com/pros/noel-gallagher/fender-68-custom-twin-reverb), yellow Dunlop Tortex Standard Guitar Picks (0.73mm) can be seen. He says: > "Thanks to Daniel at Gig Rig for building me a new pedal board. I shall be noodling now from here to eternity!"more
I use Tortex picks exclusively. Usually the yellow, then sometimes the orange or green, depending what style or guitar I'm playing. The material is like a matte finish and easy to grip. The colors are nice—easy to find when I drop them. They also go through the wash well. I usually have about 3-4 fall on the ground when taking stuff out of the dryer. My wife thinks it's cute—better than a tube of Chapstick I guess :)
I've been using these picks since I started playing. At first they were hard to work with because I didn't understand very well how to play guitar, or play with a pick for that matter either, but these are great picks and I will be continuing to buy them and play with them. As a rhythm guitar player I haven't found a better pick that has as low a flex for the gauge than my trusty Yellow Dunlop Tortex Picks.
As Billie Joe Armstrong uses those, I decided to buy some of them. They are amazing, and were my first choice, and I love them, but they are more for strumming. Also, for any kind of genre.
