i have been playing for about 7 months now and i am trying getting into faster and faster stuff...

i always seem to be inconsistent in my picking, sometimes i do well, other times i miss stuff entriely

i was just wondering whats the best place to hold your pick and set your other fingers so i dont miss the strings when i try to play fast...

if your trying to play unholy confessions, they bounces there wrists, up, down

i dont hold it this way most of the time for comfort reasons but i believe you are supposed to hold it between your thumb and index finger using only those two fingers

I prefer to use a smaller pick so I more control. The pick (Jim Dunlop Jazz 3) also has a very small radius at the tip was makes it glide over the string easier. I use my second and third finger for balance along with the backside of my hand were my thumb connect for slight muting and balance. I also never hold the pick to tight.

Yes it would help if we knew how you're already using it.

i am sorry i said this wrong, i meant where should i rest the rest of my fingers, as a support to my picking fingers, because if my hand isn't resting anywhere, i miss alot of notes

sorry for the confusion

I put my thumb on one side and my index and middle fingers on the other side, and it gives it a little bit of curvature when i squeeze it.
