I'm a newer bassist (guitar convert) and my friend pointed out to me a few nights ago, that I was finger picking wrong. I made the argument, that everyone plays differently, yada, yada. Then, I try his way, or the standard way, and holy camoli the different in power surprised me. Prior to that event, how I fingerpicked was by curling a small amount of my finger tip under the string and plucking it up, opposed to him pushing the string down and letting it pop back up on its own. There is much more umph in his playing style, nothing that I couldn't have "added" to mine through a mixer, but regardless I've started retraining myself to use the way he fingerpicks as it could be much more quicker when I become better at it, it just feels so uncomfortable for now! I'm just curious, has anyone else started out with this (I don't want to call it a problem, but) problem?
