I adopted a new picking style utilizing more of the base of my thumb for increased stability (modeled kind of after paul gilbert). It works fine except than in my rhythmn playing my index fingers keep brushing up against the strings. I tried putting more pick area out but then I lose control and it is too difficult to do pinch harmonics. This is VERY annoying!
never adopt a new picking style just cause it worked well for them. just because it works well for them doesnt mean it will work well for you
