Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been trying to learn how to use the pick since I started playing the guitar, oh about 40 years ago, and didn't like the flat sound I get when I strum. I just recently switched from classical to acoustic in playing for our church choir and I was forced to learn how to use the pick. Your video makes a lot of sense for me. You described what was wrong with my technique. After a few minutes of trying your technique, I can hear a better sound already. Thank you very much. More power to you!
