Okay, so I've been playing guitar for awhile. I've noticed something. I hold the pick between my thumb and index finger but I've noticed when I do fast alternate picking licks I put on middle finger (picking hand) on the nail of my index finer. I guess I'm doing this for more strength but is a bad habit or bad technique?

Do you feel it adding extra tension to your wrist? If it feels that way it will be bad for you most likely, I'm not 100% positive on what you're trying to say though.

Alternatively, have your friends hold him down, then take a dump in his mouth, make sure your genitals don't touch him though, that's gay.

if you press down relatively hard with your middle finger on top of your index, it might give you a little trouble with pinch harmonics because the pick might slip out of your hand.

or not. just something that could happen.

I noticed I do this, never thought much of it however, I am learning a peice that requires use of plectrum and fingers as well, not sure but is this hybred picking (I may be wrong) although I can finger pick ok I found I it very hard to do this technique because I just can't keep my middle finger seperate from my index finger.
I wish I had tallent and ability.
