I'm starting to loosen up my arm when I strum chords, but now my fingers are loosening up too, and I'm dropping my pick a lot. Any hints on what I could do to solve this? When I tighten my grip on the pick, my arm starts to tighten up too.

Are you taking it slow when you relax or are you going full at it? Cause it sounds like maybe you are trying to learn to play relaxed at your regular speed. This ofcouse is just me guessing.

If this is the case, try working on slower material where you can still be aware of your arm and hand seperatly while playing.

the cause of that is too much ************ dude lolz just kidding

you gotta relax,.. dont force your arm to do it,...

pick sliding off? try to explore your pick hold it wherever you feel comfortable, get a good grip on it but not grip it with tremendous force you might break your strings hahha...
