Hello fellow bassists. My first post here. How should I hold'em? I understand that when u pick a string with a pick u go down and up, down and up, right? Thats the whole idea. Problem is I go down and cant go up. Receantlly however I've noticed thats a lot easier when u hold the pick in such a way that it kinda 'cuts' the string rather than pulls it. Do u follow? Is taht the way I should hold the pics. It kinda makes anoying noises. Or is it that its up to the player how he holds it. Thanx.
