I am finding more and more people playing "hybrid" style picking.  I have done this myself for over 40 years.  Instead of using a thumb pick, I hold a flat pick between my thumb and first finger (index finger) and then use either 2 or 3 fingers as you might use thumb and fingers 1,2,3 .  It gives you the best of both worlds.  If you need to fully finger pick you can palm the pick using your pinky finger.
