    Hi all,

    Milt Hinton played on "Trio Jeepy" (at least I think that was the name), by Branford Marsallis. It's just Bass, drums, and sax, so you can hear a lot of what's going on...

    i do this same type of style myself, more poping the string with a palm mute..i get a good swing rhythm going..fingers start to hurt after a while but time will take care of that.

    i switch between the 2 styles of plucking and finger playing.
