How to hold the pick/plectrum:
Things to remember:
- Hold the pick between your thumb and index finger only. The other three fingers should never touch the pick.
- Don’t make a fist. Open your hand.
- The tip (pointy part) of the pick should be pointing out the side of your thumb (towards the strings when in the playing position).
- Have one centimetre of pick tip showing. The rest of the pick should be covered by your thumb.
