This lessons has a few thoughts on your picking hand.

If you intend to play classical you should learn to play with your fingernails (or at least your fingertips!). And use all your fingers; not just your thumb or index finger! You can play the beginner examples with a pick but subsequent classical lessons might require using more fingers and might not be possible with only a pick.

Otherwise, you will be using a pick (or plectrum) and it is important to approach using it with an efficient, controlled manner.
