That said, I play with my finger tips as well, but I can't really say that I have ever paid any attention to how anyone else plays so I don't know how uncommon the way dude in the video holds the controller is.
I never said inside
of your knuckle or "other side of your finger nail." To me, finger tips is literally the tip of your fingers. I was trying to explain the part of your finger on the other side of, or opposite the nail.
C'mon though. It sounds like you understood it if you could make those replacements.
I did add the pictures as examples of what I meant because it wasn't the best explanation. I don't think there is a name for those specific parts of the finger. Maybe there is. Playing like that guy doesn't look very comfortable or practical.
