Can’t seem to remember if this was ever mentioned.
What pick did Jerry use in ‘72 with Alligator?
Don’t think the Adamas graphite picks were around back then.

I'm not certain, but I read a mid-70s Jerry interview recently where he said he was using a Fender heavy pick. Don't remember if that was off a link from here or where.

I'm certainly no authority, but I also recall having read similarly in a place or two - Fender extra heavies, 1.5mm actually. They're good picks! Don't feel as heavy as other 1.5s I've played. I like the Dunlop primetone 1.5s as a middle ground.. Plenty firm, not as bright as the Adamas.
