When practicing I strive for pushing the string down into the fretboard with the fleshy tip just slightly under the edge of the fingernail. Leaving the finger pointing into the fretboard at a 90 degree angle. This seems good if I want to leave neighboring strings resonating. However, if I don't want that, I tend to get unwanted noise from those strings. It also works poorly with bending since the fingernail will strike the string above. It is also uncomfortable when playing while standing unless I have a really short strap.
I see a lot of people playing with their fingers a lot more "flat" (45 degree angle or less) against the fretboard. But have been advised that the way described above is the more propper/cleaner technique. Hence I have been using it when I practice not to learn bad habits.
What would you recommend here; should i stick with this or adjust to a more relaxed and comfortable angle? What are the long term implications in the development of playing style here?
