The standard pick shape, broadly an elongated triangle with very rounded edges, is designed to be held at the rounder end between thumb and index finger, using the pointier end to hit the strings. Thickness is an element of the shape which is also very important. Most picks will have their thickness printed on them: say 0.53mm, which is a fairly “light” plectrum. They are often favoured for strumming work, or for a more delicate, trebly tone. However, thin picks are not ideal for control, as they often bend and flick in unintended ways.
