Palm muting for metal riffs?
I've been playing guitar for almost 15 years now and the way I play bass is pretty much just a continuation of that (I realize that bass is a different instrument and not all guitar techniques are appropriate for it).
I joined a hard rock/metal band on bass and we have a song that utilizes some palm muting similar to Metallica with lots of E-string chugging. The guitarists are palm muting these and I do the same, since it's how I'd play it on guitar. It doesn't sound bad or anything, but I was wondering if metal bassists who use picks like Jason Newsted or Dave Ellefson would palm mute the chugs while playing.
