i can do either but prefer that way

i do a mix of the two, when im playing chords and some leads, but for most single note things, esp. with lots of bends, my thumb curls over the fretboard. my fretting fingers are a totally different story, they are hardley ever perpindicular to the fretboard, i find it uncomfortable, and seeing as i dont shred, it does really adversely affect my playing.
