It's Ticking and Clicking

I played with my metronome, and within seconds my plucking hand was cooperating. In disbelief I moved to 60bpm [I started out at 40pbm] and it meshed well. [Okay, that might be cheating since that's closest to a player's heartbeat; and therefore the easiest tempo to play.] To triple check this phenomenon I played with 72bpm and I had it under control.

I than realized I was only using my pointer finger, and I worked my middle and ring finger [I didn't get the same result]. That was grounding, but a step forward is a still a step forward. I also noticed that my pointer finger has more surface area contact with the string when compared to my other fingers. [I think I hit a new level of anal.]
