i am aware of all the various thumb techniques (floating, etc…) but as of now, when i play my thumb is resting 1 spot above whatever string im plucking: on the pickup when i pluck the E, on the D when I pluck the G, etc.
i know there is no ‘correct’ answer but is this something that is going to be a problem as my speed & skill increase? i find it impossible to pluck cleanly when i am 2 spots above. for example, thumb resting on the E when plucking the D; in this example i get that my thumb mutes the E, and my 2 fingers mute the A as I pluck the D, but i just keep making tons of noise on the A and it feels super awkward and uncomfortable. also finding it nearly impossible to play consistently and with any speed that way.
basically: is it worth really working on changing my technique from 1 spot above to 2 spots above? right now it feels awful to do that.
