I dont know the line between picking wrong or its "just my style" but i hold the pick with 3 fingers. thumb one side and my index and middle on other. i try to do the standard. side of the index and thumb, i feel less tension but idk. it feels less solid and less fast. should i try to adapt to it? with 3 fingers i feel more tension though. its hard to decide what is best for me. i play a lot of fast metal

Play they way that you feel more comfortable.
It's a strange way your's but if you're happy and doesn't hurt.

if you've been playing like that for, oh i dunno, five or more years, and you're pretty good? then maybe it's not worth changing. but if you've been playing less and/or you aren't a competent player, try switching.

it isn't about what feels good right now, it's about choosing a way that will present the least problems for you later on as you get better and try playing more difficult things. and obviously that way is probably going to be the time-tested way that everyone else follows.

If one way has less tension then it is just straight up better.
