I would pick the A string with my pick and the e string with my ring finger.
A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music.
Put this in your signature if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music.

I would barre across the 1st - 5th strings with my index finger, and pluck the A string with the pick, and the E string with my ring finger.

Either use the pick, if you insist to use one, so pick the A string and your ring or little finger for the E string, or just finger pick it (do that...)

Hybrid pick it?

It means to use the pick with a finger like said above.
A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music.
Put this in your signature if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music.
