I'm probably not alone when I say that I need to work on my right hand technique. So I've got a 'back to the basics' question. At what angle do you have the pick when it makes contact with a string? I've been holding mine pretty flat related to the strings. Not very helpful when trying to increase speed. I've read that a 45 degree angle is optimal so before I go charge off and try to make this adjustment, what say all of you?
