Guitar Playing Technique Explained By World Renowned Virtuoso Guitarist
Tom Hess explains how to hold a guitar pick to the guitar community.
In his internet resource, Hess talks at length about one of the questions most guitarists ask – how do I hold the guitar pick? Hess believes that the majority of guitar players in fact picking with inefficient guitar picking that causes problems for many players and holds them back from becoming more consistent.
Hess says, "One of the most frequently asked questions I get from students is "How can I build my guitar speed?" They are usually under the impression that building guitar speed simply means moving your hands faster, but this is very far from the truth. Truth is, guitar speed is merely a result of having mastered various guitar techniques. Until you build a solid foundation of excellent technique, it won't matter... playing fast will be extremely hard for you."
He goes onto to discuss more: "Holding the guitar pick the right way can make playing fast and clean much easier to do with consistency. Plus, it doesn't take too long to adjust your current technique to get better."
In Hess's resource, he shows a video demonstration of how to hold the pick correctly; thereby solving a common mystery that others in the guitar playing community never figure out.
