Slipin Lizard eventually gets it mostly right
There is a notion out there that for ultimate speed, you use a light pick with light gauge strings... but we're talking about people in search of pure speed... no musicality, just going super super fast with non-melodic "solos".. But there's plenty of "fast" players that don't subscribe to that setup. Eric Johnson uses a thick gauge pick, and he's plenty fast. I find that when you go too floppy, the pick just doesn't feel precise anymore. I think I use a 70mm or something... that works for me.
