Hold a guitar pick or "plectrum" between your thumb and index finger. Grasp it firmly enough to strike the strings, but not so firmly that it's rigid. Let the pick brush the string, but do not try to "scoop" the string. Choose a pick size that works for you, practice the correct way to place your hands on the guitar, and practice strumming and plucking until you can generate a clean sound. To hold a pick, pinch it between your index finger and thumb so your fingers cover half of the pick. Hold it tightly enough that it is secure, but not so tightly that it is rigid.
