I'm curious what people think about this. I hold my pick on an upward slant with my thumb curved upwards. I know most prefer or recommend the downward slant. I noticed the pick will wobble so is that because it's being held in the fleshy part, whereas with a downward slant the pick is on the side of the finger where it's much harder? I can't get downward slant going for the life of me, the pick gets stuck on the upward stroke so the motion becomes very tight. I'm a lefty so everything opposite is comfortable for me...curved thumb up for edge picking, upward slant to break the string plane and inside/outside picking.
