You should hold it however feels comfortable.

It's best to leave maybe half a centimetre open to hit the string, maybe a bit more. I was told to make a gun shape with your thumb vertical and your index horizontal and balance the pick along the side of your index so the pointed end of the pick is running the same as the finger itself.

Then curl the finger and bring your thumb down on it.

You should just play it how you reguraly do. If your having a problem picking, its most likely having to do with your hand strength, and how you pick, not how you hold it.

Whatever feels most natural to you. I hold mine with the tip of the pick inline with the tips of my pointer and thumb. I was told that's wrong and it'll slip but it suits me fine and doesn't slip. You have to find your own method but nothing insane and out of the norm that will cause you to be held back.

Uh dude. Get off of here. If you don't play guitar, then why the **** are you on this site? People are trying to 'help' you and you cuss them out and (most likley) diss their country. So get off the site, and off the internet for all I care. We don't need assholes like you hangin around here.

Thin necks make you play faster because guitars with thin necks sound thin and bad, and you play fast to distract people from the bad tone.
