    I've been told that my finger technique/ attack is rather heavy. Others have played my bass, and I can barely hear what they do. When I pick it back up, I've been told it's twice as loud as the previous player. I've heard guys that make my technique seem rather gentle though.

    I know this is very open-ended, but (musical and stylistic concerns aside) how hard is too hard?

    Thanks.

    Theres no problem on playing hard, but you need to know wich sound is comming from you playing that way, its a matter of taste, sometimes the type of music requires a had plucking, may be a pick, maybe some soft playing near the neck. I play soft most of the times couse i like that sound and i fell very comfortable doing that but maybe you like playing hard, have in mind that it makes a diference on the sound.
