not talking about shredding or anything, just best way to hold it for fluidity whilst playing, or is it really just personal preference?

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

personal preference IMO you should worry alot more on your fret hand, wrist and arm placement and vibrato/bend technique

EDIT: And muscle tension keep relaxed & comfortable

IMO how you hold the pick matters more when playing at high gain than at low gain or on acoustic guitars.

I hold the pick between the edge of the tip of my index finger and my thumb. When playing high gain tones, use the edge of the base of your thumb to mute the strings you aren't playing above the string you are playing. This will help you play cleanly even with lots of distortion.

i put mine on the last knuckle of my index finger, and put my thumb on top.

personal preference really, but this way, it's easier to do pinch harmonics

the most common way is between your index and thumb with the pointy edge toward your guitar. But George lynch sometimes used the side of his pick instead of the point. I've tried it it's hard to get used to.
