    Hi - I am new to the forum. I am a pretty good guitarist, mostly rock and blues for over 30 years.

    I am purposedly NOT using a pick until I learn the right hand index-middle finger technique.

    Anyone else been down the same road as me?

    Yeah, I learned finger style first but then taught myself pick style. It doesn't really make a difference, if you want to play with a pick go at it. I recommend you try to become proficient in all playing techniques, that way you have many more options. I play pick style most of the time, but I'll also do finger style. Basically just practice your chops with a metranome and get those 8's down.
