    Hello. I've been switching between 2 finger picking and pick picking since I got my 4 string Squire P-Bass (w/ jazz pickups). Mostly I used pick picking. Sorry if I'm not using all the right words but you get the idea. With pick picking I would always drop the pick. Today, I tried out a new way, it's comfortable, and I was wondering what your take is on it, and if it's the stupidest thing you've ever heard let me know too.

    I rest my arm on the top of the bass to the side. I use the inside of my thumb to pick the top of the string. My other 4 thumbs rest below the bottom string. This style makes it very very easy to do a great sounding pop, which I like to use in the songs I make (weird cause I don't slap almost at all). What do you think of this?

    Crap.. on certain frets each time i hit the string it makes a pop noise no matter what. Too bad.
