I was a decent classical guitar player as a teenager, then like so many of us began picking out pop songs on the guitar, message in a bottle, etc.
Decades later I now have my first electric guitar, and I've just noticed I hold a pick cradled between my thumb and first and 2nd fingertips.
Watching videos and other players this seems to be a bit unusual. I switched to thumb & side of index finger, like in the video posted here somewhere on pick technique....and I have gone backwards 2 months, tone has also changed, for the worse.
Should I persevere, is there any drawback with what I'm currently doing? I feel I'm slowly progressing as I am, struggling with string muting, but I don't reckon that's pick related, any view folks?
