got more questions today

i met a guy that has been playing for over 10 years and he gave me some tips on how to develop speed how to angle the pick and that kind of thing he explained to me that the pick should be more perpendicular on a way that kind of scratches the strings so it doesn't get stuck

when you play stuff with the pick parallel is more lkely to get stuck obvious common sense but he showed me in person how to angle it

so i was wondering how does this angle of the pick apply to sweep picking and strumming

is the pick held the same way in the 2 situations mentioned above?

for example is the pick held parallel to the strings in strumming? or should i do it more perpendicular?

same question but with sweep picking? how should i angle it?

also what is the difference between a rake and sweep picking is it that a rake has just more strentght applied to it?

i got more questions is just that i forgot most of them

ESP JH-600
ValveKing 112
DigiTech Whammy Pedal
Taylor 314CE
Dunlop SW-95 Slash Wah Pedal

Actually it's "less haste, more speed"

The less you rush about trying to get something done the faster you'll actually do it.
Actually called Mark!
