A small place for those who hold their pick with a middle finger and thumb...to come and chat and defend their unique ways of holding a pick.

Flame shield is up for those against our ways....We are who we are

i actually used to play like this until about last october or november. my index and mid fingers both were on the pick but my mid finger was doing all of the work. honestly i cant say that this way is wrong either because i can do the same stuff now that i could a year or two years ago. if its comfortable and it works for you then go with it!

its interesting to know im not the only one who at leat at one time was committed to playing like this!

I saw a video with Glen Drover (Megadeath guitarist) picking a lick while holding his pick like that.

I was like WTF!?!?! But hey different strokes fer different folks.
