Finger Positions & Chords

The Guitar Pick or Plectrum

Hold a guitar pick (or “plectrum”) between your thumb and index finger. Grasp it firmly enough to strike the strings, but not so firmly that it’s rigid. Let the pick brush the string, but do not try to “scoop” the string. Choose a pick size that works for you, practice the correct way to place your hands on the guitar, and practice strumming and plucking until you can generate a clean sound.

Einstein once said: “Life without playing music is inconceivable to me. I live my daydreams in music.
I see my life in terms of music... I get most joy in life out of music”.
