Sup guys?

I find it much easier to make rythms while strumming with the back of my fingers, but when I'm playing a song in wich I have to strum and pick, I obviously use a pick, but in the strumming part, the pick sometimes gets stuck in the dtrings when I'm trying to some more complex rhytms.


i use a medium pick...


any tips?

Maybe a lighter guage?
Or choke up on your hold a bit.
Or even pull the pick back a LITTLE bit so not so muchof it hits the strings so it's harder to get caught?

Agh I'm sorry.
What I mean is, either a lighter guage of picks
Or hold a little more of the pick in your hand, like, exposing less of the tip from out of your fingers.

Try getting you pick to have less contact with the strings,or as the guy above me posted lighter gauge of picks.
