Thread Name: Revolutionary Pick Thinking
Subject: RE: Revolutionary Pick Thinking
I started playing the guitar with a classical technique and, at various times, I tried to get to grips(!) with a pick but never felt in control; however, at some point, I made a very big effort and now it feels very natural. One tip is to keep a pick in your pocket, and in spare moments finger it - the object being to become very comfortable with the feel of it and its dimensions. There is a very interesting article ( dissertation!) on the correct way to hold a pick by Tuck Andress ( I think that's how you spell his name) on his website.
