When I play scales, arpeggio's or power chords it's fine.

But when I strum, the pick slowly spins in my fingers and I find myself being distracted. This is very off putting and really annoying, I find myself thinking about the pick and lose the rhythm (even simple stuff) and if I need to play notes it all turns to crap.

It's the reason I play very little acoustic or funk style rhythm.

Anyone find this? How did you overcome it?

Inward, or toward the bridge

I meant more like along which axis? Is it spinning in your fingers, rotating and staying flat, or sort of trying to spin against your fingers like twisting our of your grip?
