i strum most rhythm with 3 fingers on pick but pick individual notes with 2... but when i have to move between these two i dont have time to adjust pick in my hand.... do most people strum with 2 fingers (thumb index)? it feels so much harder to control

I think if you strum with 3 fingers, it feels too rigid, where I like my strumming to feel loose and relaxed.

Yeah I strum with 2 fingers, and it does feel loose if you're using a smooth pick. Try chewing on your pick (or getting a racoon to do it like I did xD) to give it some grip and it might not feel as out-of-control.

i never really think about the way i hold a pick... it's like when someone asks you how you hold a pencil; you never really know how you do it, it's just kinda natural... i suppose i use two fingers all the time, but i can't really say for sure. my suggestion to you is either find a way to easily transition between the two, or just train yourself to strum the way you do single notes, or vice versa.

No, some people actually like Tom Green.

Me neither, due to him not being alive and all.
