Nah, no, I have no way of taking a picture of me with a guitar pick right now, but I'm not doing it in any unique weird way smile.gif

First way is the classic one & the second one is when I want to play with fingers.
I hold the pick between the index & middle fingers.

Bingo! smile.gif Pretty much the same. I choke up on the pick a bit when playing/shredding/pinching.

I guess pick holding techniques are like fingerprints, they are all different. I feel really different! biggrin.gif
