I’ve read the info on the forums about pick lean (more of a position of the hand than the pick being rotated in the grip to an orientation that isn’t 90deg from the thumb) and couldn’t quite find an answer to this question.
I find that rotating the pick greater than 90deg from the thumb helps to accommodate smooth upstrokes when there is a fair bit of DWPS and only a moderate amount of edge picking (I prefer the tone of this type of setup). Because of my supinated setup and 802 motion, the pick travels a little more vertically on the upstokes than the pickslant angle. Thusly, this causes snagging on the upstrokes unless the pick rotated slightly. I’ve been using this setup for years and it works but was surprised that I haven’t seen more people who do this.
I also noticed that Joscho may also grip on his pick so the point is +90deg (even more than the amount needed to accommodate his Gypsy Swing setup).
Is this an acceptable technique or a band-aid solution? Asking for a friend
