I've been trying to "convert" myself to rest strokes for a while now (because that's the correct way, right?) It has been really difficult, it seems the extra motions of constantly having to hit the lower string are slowing me down dramatically, creating a lot of extra noise, and generally just frustrating me to the point where I feel like putting the bass away and not touching it for a month. Is there some trick to it or something? How can you use rest strokes without hearing a little "thud" when you hit the lower string? Any tips would be greatly appreciated, this is really frustrating me..
