New to floating thumb/bass question
Hi, im a new bass player and have recently been switching between the floating thumb technique and movable anchor (trying to see which technique Im going to stick with-anchoring on the pickup is very uncomfortable for me) where my thumb rests on the string right above the one im playing.
My question is when playing the lowest string, E in this case. Are you using your wrist/forearm sort of as an anchor by resting it on the bass? I can't seem to get comfortable at all with my hand not on anything when playing the bottom string. I realize that it will/should become easier with practice. But it still feels awkward for me. Any help is appreciated.
