youre gigging, and dont know how to hold a pick?

seriously. thats stupid.

the correct way to hold a pick is first, point out your index finger, curl it, the pick should be pointing where the last knuckle is pointing, then put your thumb down.

most people try to play with a little bit of the pick sticking out, less time for the pick hitting the strings, cleaner sound, faster playing etc etc.

also dont be afraid to grip it. it should be part of your hand, not flopping around everywhere.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

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

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

Just use your thumb and pointer and/or middle finger to hold the pick ....... sounds better than glue if you ask me :P

The guy from spock's beard finger picks.

That's....


an abomination. It's like a BC Rich had sex with an Ibanez, had an abortion, and it survived on the side of the road eating roadkill and drinking it's own urine.

Most metal guitar ever. Period.

Yeah, It muffels the sound
It softens the sound and is normallly used for classic guitar
I finger pick, but only with my acoustic, I get a clangy bend when I use my guitar, thats built on distortion
