Just move your pick towards your hand, so that the side of it is ready to tap. wink.gif

I mean like, is it the sharp side of the pick that you tap with or is it the not so sharp side? smile.gif

I'm bad at explaining i know smile.gif but the side that you have against the mouse is the not so sharp side, and the other one is the sharp side smile.gif

But shouldn't it be easier to use the other side/sides?

The other side of the pick is as sharp as the other. huh.gif Just do it in the best way for you. Try every side and decide which is the most comfortable.

Follow Tolek's pictures and substitute mouse for guitar fretboard. Can use anything that has an edge - plectrum, finger nail, coin, ring-pull, samurai sword..
