I was wondering how everyone here holds their picks. I hold mine in my own way, but that might not be the best for speed. Could anyone show me a different way to hold it?

I never thought on how I hold a pick unsure.gif I just hold it biggrin.gif

It has to stay firmly between fingers, and to feel comfortable that way, nothing else smile.gif
