Hey guys. Watching closely on the right hand of many skilled players we see them holding the pick between the thumb and the index finger but...most of them uses the side of the finger (so do I). There are also players who do this differently - like Van Halen or Steve Morse. The use figers other than index or just use other part of the finger rest the pick...hmmm

I wonder How many of famous players You can mention - the players with a tricky pick holding concepts ?smile.gif

For me the most comfortable way to hold a hand is definitely Guthrie's - I mean when I look at his hand, for me it looks very natural - check him out playing some piratey music:

Yes - Guthrie is a "reference guy" in many aspects smile.gif He's the wrist player and always look so cool + He's so damn precist even on very tiny and dynamic overdrives smile.gif
