Hello i'm new to this forum, find it useful and friendly already! I've been playing drums, then guitar, keyboard for a bit more than a decade now, but finally I decided to take a big step forward and learn BASS. We used to switch instruments sometimes with my band fellows to keep things fresh and come up with a new perspective, and I was always thinking that bass was the ultimate experience ! Well here I am, i practiced on a borrowed bass for 4 months, and yesterday, I bought my first bass. I can play with a pick (thanks to the guitar}, and it gives a nice interesting sound, but i prefer fingerstyle. Now I have a stupid question (?) I usually play with two fingers, and the thumb resting on the top of a pick-up. My thumb doesn't move, and I (very) sligthly bring my forarm forward to reach the bottom strings. I read somewhere that the thumb should follow the other fingers ( i. e. rest on the D string when I play the G string) I tried that but it feels slow and uncomfortable. Is my way of playing wrong ? Will I be more exposed to injuries in the long run? Should I change it even though I feel comfortable with it? Is there anybody who plays the way I do? Well, any advice will be welcome.
