I've been playing bass for about a year now, and I've come to realize that my thumb (on my plucking hand) rests on the neck right next to the body. Then my fingers stretch back to the right of the fretboard. I've always felt that putting your thumb on the pick-up is uncomfortable, and this just seems better for me. I'm willing to change if it will help me progress as a bassist, but I don't know. Does this effect my tone or anything else when I'm playing? Should I change and just get used to it?
