I've been playing seriously for maybe nine months, and I've always held the pick between my thumb and middle finger a là Eddie Van Halen. The question I have is, because of stuff like hybrid picking (I know Stevie Ray Vaughan does it in a couple of his songs) is it worth it to try and learn to pick between my thumb and index finger?
Try it, whatever if more comfortable to you then that's the way to go.
It's pretty much up to you. I've seen someone comfortably hold his pick between his index and middle finger and he could shred like no other.
yea watever feels best and because you hold it like that your hybrid picking may just be a little diffrent
hmm..it probably works either way, but i guess like peeps said above whichever works for you. your speed might be affected but hey there's always fingertips! just kidding. urm..hope you find your right method then.peace out!
