Recently I read that the index finger on the left hand should fret differently from the others (i.e. use the pad rather than the tip). I confirmed this by carefully watching the pros and found it to be true to my despair . I have always used the tip of my finger.
Is there any recommended way to relearn that technique? I've tried doing it on riffs that I already know with very little success.

does it really make that much difference? if it works for you, it really shouldnt matter.

I think it's more your style. I play with the tip and pad. I use the tip for vibrato and pad for normal fretting

Well I read that the pad should be used so that the tip of your index finger is muting the string above, and like I said, on watching videos of pros (where I could find closeups of the fretting hand) they did exactly that.
