I've noticed many a guitarist hold their pick in this fashion, but I can't fathom how.
The pick width is almost perpendicular, or at crossways with the strings, and this just doesn't seem right.
Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden is one of my guitar Gods.
Here's a video of him playing, which well demonstrates this way of holding the pick I am speaking of.

Someone tell me how he does this, please

It's probably quite simple, I just can't decipher it...

Do you have a picture of your hand showing how you hold the pick? I think it would be easier to work from that.


I couldn't exactly see his hand in that video

Every Guitar player holds hid or her pick slightly different. Just the way it is. You get used to doing it wrong you'll always do it wrong.
