Does your pick sometimes feel like it’s getting caught in the strings?
When a lot of people start playing guitar they don’t realise how much of a difference PICK ANGLE has on ease of picking.
A lot of people start out with their pick FLAT against the strings of their guitar – this can cause a lot of RESISTANCE when picking.
I always teach my students to ANGLE their pick to the strings by bending the thumb of their picking hand.
This gives the feeling of the pick SLICING through the strings instead of SNAGGING.
