Thread Name: pick - how do you hold it?
Subject: RE: pick - how do you hold it?
Tunesmith's standard recommended technique (as shown http://www.playprosoft.com/tips/tb_3.html) is fine - worked for me for 25 years without RSI, but 15 years of fingerstyle with old-fashioned finger nails beats it by miles.
Just ask the likes of Eric "Slow-hand" and Mark Knofler. No going back for me - and I suspect that another 15 years of plectrumming just might have resulted in RSI eventually.
