When picking should I rest my hand on the strings or keep my hand above the strings?

Because lately I started to keep my hand above the strings but that does not work out very well because that way I have no control over my picking whatsoever.

Are You a PROG-HEAD? I am.

when strumming it would be most uncomfortable to keep you hand on the string but for single note runs or when playing with a lot of gain you might want to keep you hand on the strings your not playing to mute them
its all your technique really

above the strings, anchoring is deadly for a guitar player


I know anchoring is bad but when I have my hand above the string I cant control my picking except for when Im strumming.
