Wow Ben -

I'm guessing you must be digging in pretty good. Rather than change your attack, I think your thoughts on moving your attack may be the easiest thing to do: move closer to the bridge or a bit closer to the base of the neck.

That'll probably mean changing your anchor - where your arm/hand/etc actually contact the guitar which may take a while to get used to as well.

I'm constantly shifting back and forth from my acoustic to my electric. Acoustic is my primary, so I still have to pause and gather my thoughts to change my attack on the electric or I'll rip the strings right off the neck.

Good luck and I'll be interested to hear from you how it goes.
