    I was having a hard time screwing around with pics. They slow me down and get caught up on the string. So i got a new idea. Try cutting two picks in half from side to side. Theres a reason for this. Now tape them two your plucking fingers and try playing that way. See if you like it. Tell what you think. If you dont understand, write.

    Why not just use a guitar player's finger picks that are already made to be used just as you have described? Then you don't need to use tape. Just slip the ring over your finger. The only reason I can think of for doing it your way is that you can use heavier picks as guitar ring picks may be too light weight for bass strings.
