When I play guitar, particularly strumming and palm muting, I've recently realized that my index finger and my thumb (more so the side of my thumb) is also hitting the strings alongside my plectrum.
Now, from doing a bit of an experiment purposely playing without any contact with my finger or thumb and then again with contact, I've found that the sound doesn't really change regardless of how I play.
Here's a few pics of how I hold the plectrum, and a video for audio reference. Is it an issue if contact comes with my finger and thumb as well as the plectrum?
Video playing with finger/thumb contact and without. I can't notice any differences personally, but here goes:
Thanks. Let me know if this is an issue or not?
