Mike, Let me start off by saying that I'm a hard rock/metal bass player, which is partially why I prefer to play with a pick. I have nothing against finger players, slappers or tappers. It's just not my thing. With that out of the way, do you have any suggestions in improving not only my pick speed by improving the precision of picking? I find sometimes I have a tendancy to hit certain notes too hard or not hard enough (especially with covers) and sometimes I'm not quick enough with muting and my notes get flubbed together. I want to play hard yet very precise bass lines. Any suggestions?
