Well when I was playing the guitar i was fingerpicking the chords and i needed to strum with the pick immediatly during the song and it took some time to stop fingerpicking, grab the pick and start strumming. Do you guys know a way to keep the pick in your hand when you are fingertapping or fingerpicking and immediatly start playing with it when necessary?

Generally if something absolutely has to be fingerpicked in the middle of a piece that otherwise needs a pick then bybrid picking is the way to go, that is to say using both your pick and the fingers that aren't holding the pick to pluck the strings.

Also for tapping I favour tapping with my middle finger rather than the index so I can keep hold of the pick in a normal grip while I'm doing it.

I agree Hybrid picking is the way to go here. Or you can try to tuck the pick into your palm and just hold it in the folds of skin, will take a bit of practice to get right.

its the way you feel most confortable. i had the same problem, so i changed different ways to hold my pick. and finally i found my hold. and keep practicing, find a good holding pot for the pick so that you can strum fast
