I very much like the feeling of a “naked”, all finger approach and the ability to do it on any guitar, at any time.

I WILL try a thumb pick again at some point, hopefully to stick with it to have it as an option.

You could just be like my dad who carries around thumb and finger picks in his pocket everywhere he goes!
