I only start with fingerstyle. The comparison I use most often is learning to drive a car. If you learn on a manual transmission, you can drive an automatic with no problems, but if you learn on an automatic, you usually won’t bother learning to drive a stick. In the same way, playing with a pick can become a crutch too easily for those who don’t have the skill to use their fingers.
