The pick is held in between the index finger and the thumb, the other three fingers are then free to play each of the treble strings respectively. One of the most demanding aspects of this technique is getting the 3rd and 4th fingers of the rigth hand to operate independently. You'll find this fairly difficult with the left hand when you start to play demanding chords, this is because there are small muscles in the fingers that get very little exercise away from playing a musical instrument.
The pick is almost always downstrokes whilst the fingers play what ever it is you're playing. This approach to picking shouldn't be your first, it's fairly difficult and is best approached once you've become adept at playing with the fingers and the pick independently.
The next thing you could do is look at my Bossa Nova lessons and use those chords with this technique.

could barley do it. it looks insane cool.
well.. honestly, ive lost all my picks
Ive already learned to fingerpick without using my pinky, i dont know if I could relearn it XD
I lose my picks all the time too. So I went on ebay and bought a bag full of jazz III picks. They're smaller than normal picks but are easier to control. Used in a number of genres including metal.
i use jazz III picks, i find that they are alot easier to use, especially when tremolo picking
this is actually working really well. im working on a opening to a song where i slide the pick up the e string and it the bottim three strings with a d chord with my middle finger.
lol i use jazz III's to, cause they have a pointer tip for shredding, and i saw alexi laiho used them and im a fan of his so i thought if he used them i should. i ended up liking them though.
It's the same as the first, the little finger always plays the first(high E) string, ring always plays the B string, then (arguably)middle plays the G and D string but the pick (Thumb and first finger) always play the A and low E string.
typos you should fix:
I started doing this exercise today and recomened it to everyone. I'm doing a cover of turn turn turn by the byrds on another forum and Roger Mcguinn uses this through the whole song.
Glad you like it LP!
Thats cool : )
I use this method as a last resort.
That's fair enough dude - everyone has their own approach. :)
You missunderstand me jazzy. What i mean is if its too difficult to pick the notes then I use the hybrid technique. Thats all.
rather then using a pick i just go full on fingerpicking. i do hybrid picking too but not as much
Now this is all i do anymore. The hybrid picking style.
Hybrid picking with jazz III/s is an amzing combonation and for any nonbelievers go to youtube and watch dANNY gattons redneck jazz explosion.
