I have a question about palm muting, its about the pick instead of the hand, and I needed to add a picture to clarify

What angle should the pick be at when palm muting with both up and downstrokes?

angle 1 (see pic) is how i'm most comfortable but when I stand and play, the neck points upward more than when I sit which puts my wrist at an awkward angle.

angle 3 is the opposite of 1 but is somewhat harder for me, but its easier on the wrist and i think one of my favorite guitarists does it that way in a concert DVD that i paused to look at

oh and the picture is as if you were looking straight at someone playing

How the hell do you even twist your hand into 3?
Number 1 obviously...

I think you mixed up the numbers. 1 is MUCH harder than 3, you have to twist your hand really hard.

So, 3 is the "right" one.

thanks, ive been doing 1 for a long time, my thumb bends rediculously far back so it works for me, but ill try 3 because its better on the wrist

1... your hand should be resting near the bridge when you palm mute so this would be the easiest way.

I guess it has to be 3... Check out this video by Paul Gilbert.
